Per MLBOR Bylaws: Applicants for REALTOR® membership and provisional REALTOR® members (where applicable) shall complete an orientation program on the Code of Ethics, meeting the minimum criteria established by N.A.R. for new member ethics training. This requirement does not apply to applicants for REALTOR® membership or provisional members who have completed comparable orientation in another Association, provided that REALTOR® membership has been continuous, or that any break in membership is for one year or less. Failure to satisfy this requirement within 30 days of the date of application (or alternatively, the date that provisional membership was granted), will result in denial of the membership application or termination of provisional membership.

 

Orientation is required for new MLS Participants and Subscribers.  Failure to complete orientation will result in suspension of membership.  Currently, orientation is online and information will be provided by the Association Executive.

Applicants applying for other than Primary Board or Association participation agree to supply their NRDS membership number.  A "Letter of Good Standing" from their Primary Board or Association is required and must include the completion date of orientation and confirmation that all NAR, C.A.R. and Primary Board or Association dues are current at the time of submitting the application to MLBOR.
