I hereby apply for REALTOR® Membership in the Yamhill County Association of REALTORS® (YCAR).
Application Fees and Dues: An invoice will be provided to me via email and I will be contacted regarding payment for my application fee of $50 and for my prorated (by month) membership dues. Qualifications for Membership.
I understand that membership brings certain privileges and obligations that require compliance, including the following:
- I will complete my Code of Ethics of the National Association within 30 days of the Association confirming my membership. Failure to meet this requirement may result in having my membership terminated.
- Membership in the Association means that I am also a member of Oregon REALTORS® and National Association of REALTORS® and I agree to abide by the Code of Ethics of the National Association, which includes the duty to arbitrate (or to mediate if required by the association), as well as the Constitution, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of YCAR, Oregon REALTORS® and the National Association.
Further, if required, I agree to satisfactorily complete the periodic Code of Ethics training and a reasonable and non-discriminatory written examination on such Code, Constitutions, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations.
- I acknowledge that as a member of YCAR, I will be licensed to use the REALTOR® trademarks to indicate such membership, and I agree to abide by the rules governing use of those trademarks. I understand that REALTOR® is a federally registered trademark of the National Association and use of this designation is subject to rules promulgated by the National Association. Upon termination of my membership in the Association for any reason, my license to use the term REALTOR® is automatically revoked and I will immediately discontinue use of the term REALTOR® and all REALTOR® trademarks.
- Membership is final only upon approval by the Board of Directors and may be revoked should completion of any membership requirement, such as orientation, not be completed within the timeframe established in YCARs bylaws. NOTE: The duty to submit to an ethics complaint continues in effect even after membership lapses or is terminated. Any ensuing discipline will be held in abeyance until such time as the respondent rejoins an association of REALTORS® (see Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual, Section 20(e)). The duty to submit to arbitration continues in effect even after membership lapses or is terminated, provided the dispute arose while the former member was a REALTOR®.
I hereby certify that the foregoing information furnished by me is true and correct, and I agree that failure to provide complete and accurate information as requested, or any misstatement of fact, shall be grounds for revocation of my membership if granted. I further agree that, if accepted for membership in Yamhill County Association of REALTORS®, I shall pay the fees and dues as from time to time established.
NOTE: Payments to the Association of REALTORS® are not deductible as charitable contributions. Such payments may, however, be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. No refunds. By signing below, I consent that the REALTOR® Associations (local, state, national) and their subsidiaries, if any (e.g., MLS, Foundation) may contact me at the specified address, telephone numbers, fax numbers, email address or other means of communication available. This consent applies to changes in contact information that may be provided by me to the Association(s) in the future. This consent recognizes that certain state and federal laws may place limits on communications that I am waiving to receive all communications as part of my membership.
