Annually, Suburban West REALTOR® members are invoiced for their REALTOR® membership. Notice regarding the upcoming dues amount, options for payment and respective deadlines is posted on this page and communicated directly to members via direct email and the Suburban West Weekly. Additional information should be available in mid-August.
Requirements for Maintaining REALTOR® Membership
Once an individual has become a REALTOR® with Suburban West REALTORS® Association, they are eligible to receive all benefits and services associated with membership in the local, state and national Associations.
However, there are requirements that an individual must continue to meet in order to maintain their REALTOR® membership:
- Licensure – A member must continue to maintain an active Real Estate license in Pennsylvania or a state contiguous to. If your license becomes inactive, escrowed, or placed with a referral company, your membership is required to be cancelled.
- Affiliation – A member must affiliate their license with a Designated REALTOR® of an office who belongs to the Suburban West REALTORS® Association. If the Designated REALTOR® does not belong to Suburban West, either he/she has to opt to join the organization or the member must consider joining the local organization to which the Designated REALTOR® already belongs.
- Dues – A member must remit the annual membership payment to Suburban West for their local, state and national dues. If a member fails to remit payment and is still actively licensed in a primary REALTOR® office, then the Association is required to bill the broker/manager for the licensee as a non-member.
- Education – A member must complete all Association education requirements (NOTE: these are separate from education requirements for licensure). This includes completing Suburban West’s Membership Renewal Training requirement every two years (current deadline is December 31, 2016) and the National Association of REALTORS® Quadrennial Code of Ethics requirement every four years (current deadline is December 31, 2016).
