TERMS & CONDITIONSI hereby apply for REALTOR® membership and I agree to pay all current dues and/or fees for REALTOR® membership, which I understand will be returned to me in the event I am not accepted for membership.
In the event my application is approved, I agree as a condition of membership to complete the orientation course of NICAR and, otherwise on my own initiative, to thoroughly familiarize myself with the Code of Ethics of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, including the duty to arbitrate business disputes in accordance with the Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual of the Board and the Constitution, Bylaws, and Rules and Regulations of NICAR, the State Association and the National Association, and I further agree to complete satisfactorily a reasonable and nondiscriminatory written examination covering such Code, Constitutions, Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, and duty to arbitrate.
I further agree that my act of paying dues shall evidence my initial and continuing commitment to abide by the aforementioned Code of Ethics, Constitutions, Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, and duty to arbitrate, all as from time to time amended.
Finally, I consent and authorize NICAR, through its Membership Committee or otherwise, to invite and receive information and comment about me from any Member or other person, and I agree that any information and comment furnished to NICAR by any Members or other person in response to any invitation shall be conclusively deemed to be privileged and not form the basis of any action by me for slander, libel, or defamation of character.
Applicant acknowledges that if accepted as a Member and he/she subsequently resigns or is expelled from membership in NICAR with an ethics complaint or arbitration request pending, the Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon applicant’s verification that he/she will submit to the pending ethics or arbitration proceeding and will abide by the decision of the Hearing Panel; or if applicant resigns or is expelled from membership without having complied with an award in arbitration, the Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon his/her payment of the award, plus any costs that have been established previously as due and payable in relation thereto, provided that the award and such costs have not, in the interim, been otherwise satisfied.
