Code of Ethics Training Requirement
Current Cycle: Jan 1, 2019 through Dec 31, 2021

NAR's Board of Directors recently approved a change to the Code of Ethics training requirement, extending it from every two years to every three ears. This extends the current cycle deadline from Dec. 31, 2020, to Dec. 31, 2021.

REALTORS® are required to complete ethics training of not less than 2 hours, 30 minutes of instructional time. The training must meet specific learning objectives and criteria established by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Failure to complete the required periodic ethics training shall be considered a violation of a membership duty which will result in suspension of membership for not less than thirty (30) days. On March 1, 2022, the membership of a member who is still suspended as of that date will be automatically terminated.

The deadline is December 31, 2021 to fulfill this requirement.

If you have questions on whether you have fulfilled the Code of Ethics requirement, please feel free to email DBirkner@SEBrealtors.com
NAR Introduces Group Life Insurance for NAR Members

Life insurance and AD&D insurance can help shield families from the economic impact of losing a loved one. If you have a spouse, children, or other family members depending on you, term life insurance can be an easy and affordable way to make sure money is available to help them cover expenses after you’re gone.
Consider this protection to help safeguard your family’s future.

  • REALTORS® AD&D Insurance (Accidental Death & Dismemberment)
These plans are underwritten by New York Life Insurance Company.
Member Benefit: These plans are exclusive to NAR members and offer negotiated group rates on group life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
Plans feature a range of coverage amounts and options to suit your needs. Your spouse or domestic partner is also eligible for this coverage.
