To the Huntington Board of REALTORS®, I hereby apply for REALTOR® membership in the above named Board and am enclosing my check in the amount of $ payable to the Huntington Board of REALTORS®. My dues will be returned to me in the event of non-election. In the event of my election, I agree to abide by the Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS® (which includes the duty to arbitrate), and the Constitution, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations of the above named Board, the West Virginia Association and the National Association, and if required, I further agree to satisfactorily complete a reasonable and non-discriminatory written examination on the Code of Ethics. I understand membership brings certain privileges and obligations that require compliance. Membership is final only upon approval by the Board of Directors and may be revoked should completion of requirements, such as orientation, not be completely within timeframe established in the HBOR Bylaws as a continued condition of membership.
Note: Applicant acknowledges that if accepted as a member and he/she subsequently resigns from the Board 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. If applicant resigns or otherwise causes membership to terminate the duty to submit to arbitration continues In effect even after the membership lapses or is terminated, provided the dispute arose while applicant was a REALTOR®. Amount shown is prorated according to month/quarter joining. I hereby submit the following information for your consideration:
If you are now or have ever been a REALTOR®, indicate your NRDS# and last year of completion of NAR’s Code of Ethics training requirement:
I hereby certify that the forgoing 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: Payments to the Huntington Board of REALTORS® are not deductible as charitable contributions. Such payment may, however, be deductible as an ordinary or necessary business expense.
By signing below, I consent the REALTOR®Associations (local, state & national) and their subsidiaries, if any (e.g. MLS, Foundation) may contact me at the specified address, telephone numbers, fax numbers, e-mail address or other means of communication available.
