I hereby apply for Membership in the Spartanburg Association of REALTORS®, Inc. I will attend new member orientation and complete the new member code of ethics training within 90 days of applying for membership. Membership is final only upon approval by the Executive Committee and may be revoked should completion of these requirements not be completed within the timeframe established in the association’s bylaws. Upon approval of my membership application, I agree to abide by the governing documents and policies of the Association, the State Association, and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® , as well as, the Code of Ethics of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, including the duty to mediate and arbitrate controversies arising out of real estate transactions as specified by Article 17 of the Code of Ethics, and in accordance with the procedures set forth in the Code of Ethics Arbitration Manual. I understand membership brings certain privileges and obligations that require compliance. I understand that I will be required to complete periodic Code of Ethics training as specified in the association’s bylaws as a continued condition of membership.
NOTE: Applicant acknowledges that if accepted as a member and he/she subsequently resigns from the Association or otherwise causes membership to terminate with an ethics complaint pending, the Executive Committee may condition renewal of membership upon applicant’s certification that he/she will submit to the pending ethics proceeding and will abide by the decision of the hearing panel. If applicant resigns or otherwise causes membership to terminate, the duty to submit to arbitration continues in effect even after membership lapses or is terminated, provided the dispute arose while applicant was a REALTOR®.
