APRIL 2020
We're in this together.

Dear Members,

Thank you for your patience with our FAR team during this unprecedented time of sheltering in place. Our entire staff is now working remotely, and it may take a little longer to answer your questions and provide our services, but I can assure you we will get it done. 

Please take a look below for a few reminders and deadline extensions for the month ahead, and please note that all in-person classes and events have been postponed through April. We are working on postponement dates for classes and seminars, and are also looking into utilizing digital resources such as Zoom for additional training courses in April.

As you know, legal requirements and mandates at all levels of government - local, state, and federal - are rapidly evolving due to COVID-19, and we will do our best to keep you updated and informed as information becomes available. We urge you to check the C.A.R. Coronavirus Updates website for tools, forms, webinars, and resources to help REALTORS® navigate these challenging times. 

We look forward to seeing you again! We miss the daily interaction with our members and look forward to better days ahead.  

Be well and take care of each other.

Gerard Lozano, Executive Vice President
The Fresno Association of REALTORS®
State & National Resources for COVID-19
This communication from NAR to all Members describes the many ways NAR is working to guide and support REALTORS® and the real estate industry during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. On NAR's website you’ll find up-to-date, information on how to ensure your health and safety, the virus’ impact on the economy and your business, its impact on NAR activities, and what NAR is doing to help.
Reminders for the month ahead:
Read below for more information on items coming up in April.
LCRC Deadline Extended
Local Candidate Recommendation Committee

Ballots were mailed on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, to 2020 $49 and above RAF Contributors. This was one day before our daily work lives changed. We realize offices were closed, mail was delayed and other scenarios transpired. The deadline to return allots is extended (Date TBD - possibly mid-May) but we will certainly allow sufficient time to return and mail ballots in the postage-paid envelopes.
XpressKEY Bill
Your annual XpressKEY Access & all co-ops bill has been mailed and is due by April 15th, however, the deadline has been extended an extra month based on the current circumstances. The new XpressKEY bill deadline is now Monday, May 18th.
Due to our current situation, FAR's Second annual Evolve Expo will be postponed until further notice. As news comes in we are looking at options to hold this amazingly educational event for you all. Stay tuned for more information.
