Member Update
Good afternoon Members!

The situation in our world and industry is evolving with each day. Our association wants to keep you apprised of such changes on the local, state and national level.

First and foremost, our County Offices, State Association and National Association are providing timely and continuous updates on their sites. Please refer to the following links for current information on county protocol, industry practices and NAR's engagement with Congress to affect assistance on behalf of our industry businesses and independent contractors:

Additionally, C.A.R. has assisted REALTORS during this time with the offering of a free Zoom account for local associations for the next 90 days. We are using Zoom to host virtual staff meetings, Board of Directors sessions, committee meetings, Broker Roundtables and webinars by third party partners and consultants.

Our staff will be reaching out to you individually by phone to check in and see if your questions have been answered regarding the Governor's Order, transactions, MLS and current R.E. practices. I have provided a message and link below to a fillable PDF; I am requesting that you take the time to update our records in our association system so that we can provide more timely and effective communication with our members.

Operations - Our association continues to operate effectively on a remote basis. We are answering all calls and have sold store items curbside by appointment.

Legislation - Last evening our Directors approved of partnering with the Grass Valley Chamber and Contractors association to furnish a "Call To Action" letter to Congress regarding the inclusion of independent contractors and 501c(6) organizations in their federal assistance package being voted on today. We will keep you posted on the outcome. The CA Governor today today and addressed the virus and our businesses. I have provided you with the link to access his facebook speeches:

E&O Insurance - A member firm has apprised us that E&O insurance may be at risk when one does not obey the law. We ask that you use good judgment when following the Governor's Order. Please seek the C.A.R. legal hotline at (213) 739-8383 when questions occur or you are unsure of current allowable practices under the spirit of the Law.

Lastly, take this time to review your marketing strategies for the upcoming months, line up your campaign, get ahead on your continuing education by tapping into the FREE C.A.R. 45 hours of online education and MetroList MLS training webinars. Why not work on a certification or designation to achieve greater opportunies for referrals. I found NAR's ePro certification fascinating and educational!
