ETHICS - PLEASE READ!
NAR requires all members take 2 hours and 30 minutes of Ethics every two years. We have started a new NAR cycle that requires all members to take an Ethics class between January 1, 2019, and no later than December 31, 2020. If you took an Ethics class before January 1, 2019 it will not count for this cycle. If you have not completed a class by December 31, 2020, you will be suspended for two month or until you've taken the required class. Members still suspended on March 1, 2021 will be terminated from membership. These are NAR rules and we have to enforce them!
This year we are providing members a free Ethics class at the MAR office. We will have three (3) dates during the year and we encourage you to take a class sooner rather than later.
