Do I need to attend this Orientation class?

Or, you may take the National Association of REALTORS®' New Member Code of Ethics Orientation online at www.realtor.org ("Take the Code of Ethics" training link and then "New Member Code of Ethics Orientation" link).
No - if you are transferring from another Association and have already completed the mandatory COE training during the current Quadrennial cycle. (Jan 1, 2009 – Dec. 31, 2012).
Do I have to attend BOTH a new member Orientation session and a local Northwest Metro Association Orientation?
Yes - all new members MUST attend both sessions to maintain active membership in the Northwest Metro Association.

How does it benefit me?
It fulfills Association membership requirements. It educates you on the Northwest Metro Association of REALTORS® membership benefits, facilities, services and the Code of Ethics.

When do I need to take this Orientation class?
The Orientation session is offered each month. As an Northwest Metro Association applicant, you have six (6) months to attend one (1) class. If, after six (6) months, you still have not gone through one (1) of these sessions, your membership application will be made inactive. To reactivate your applicant status you must reapply and repay the application fee. Once you reapply, you will again be invited to attend a minimum of six (6) Orientation classes until you attend one.
How will this affect my Professional Achiever's Circle status?
If you attend the Orientation class within the last three (3) months of the six (6) month membership requirement, your sales volume will start to count on the date that you attend the new member Orientation session.
When will I know when the Orientation class is being offered?
Notices are sent the monthly to all applicants needing the Orientation. This notice informs you that you still need to complete the requirement and links to the main Orientation page, where the calendar of upcoming courses are displayed.
