Here’s a milestone the likes of which most of us probably won’t see again: NAR has just issued member # 100000. The “lucky” recipient (lucky? He’s going to have to go through life saying, No, REALLY, that IS my NAR number!) is a 10 year old from Washington.
I joined NAR in December 2013 and my number is 96842, so that’s about 3200 members in 19 months or just over 2000 members per year. At that rate number # 200000 will be issued sometime around 2065. I suspect the rate will vary between now and then, though.
