Twenty-eight people were named to the board of directors for the Illinois Association of REALTORS® at a meeting on Tuesday.

The board will serve for the 2013-2014 year, and include 18 candidates selected by a nominating committee, six association past presidents, three officers and the association’s immediate past president. There is also an ex-officio appointment to the board of the National Association of REALTORS® Region 7 vice president.
