Important Note for Designated REALTOR® Applicants:
The National Association of REALTORS® dues formula requires that Designated Brokers pay dues for themselves as well as an assessment that equals dues times the number of ALL licensees in their offices who are not REALTOR® members of an Association. Brokers can reduce their dues obligation by requiring their agents to join SMDRA.

Finally, I consent and authorize the Association, 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 the Association by any member or other person in response to any such 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. 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.

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 Board of Directors 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.
