Application for REALTOR® Membership
Through submitting this application I hereby apply for REALTOR® Membership in the REALTOR® Association of Central Massachusetts (RACM). Enclosed is my non-refundable membership dues and application fee.
In the event that my application is approved, I agree as a condition of membership to complete the indoctrination course of RACM and, 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, Rules and Regulations of RACM, the State Association and the National Association.
I further agree that my act of paying dues shall evidence my initial and continuing commitment to abide by the aforementioned Code of Ethics, Constitution, Bylaws, Rules and Regulations and duty to arbitrate, all as from time to time amended.
I understand that should I withdraw this application or fail to attend the New Member Orientation class after receiving the second notice; this application will be CANCELLED and the application fee will be retained by the Association as a service charge. I will be required to remit an additional application fee if I decide to reapply. If my application is returned to me, I understand that the Designated REALTOR® of my office will receive a non-member assessment billing.
The RACM Board of Directors reviews and approves membership on a provisional basis, subject to applicant’s completion of the required New Member Orientation program within 120 days of the application date. Failure to complete the orientation requirement will constitute voluntary withdrawal of the application and forfeiture of the application fee. In addition, membership dues once paid, are non-refundable. If you are transferring from another Board within Massachusetts, the application fee will be waived.
