New Member Orientation required for Keybox access!
Beginning Sept. 1, 2018, new agents will be required to complete Columbus REALTORS® New Member Orientation within 90 days of obtaining electronic key box access.
Failure to complete the orientation within 90 days will cause their electronic key box access to be interrupted until the orientation requirement is satisfied.
This new policy is a result of recommendations from the Columbus REALTORS® Raise the Bar Presidential Advisory Group, which is focusing on ways to raise the bar of professionalism.
A key portion of new member orientation, mandated by our National Association of Realtors®, is 2.5 hours of training on the National Association of REALTORS® Code of Ethics, which will give new members the much-needed instruction on the professional standards of practice that will help them deal with many of the challenging issues they will face in today’s marketplace.
To help new members fulfill this membership obligation, the association will be offering New Member Orientation twice a month starting in September.
Once the New Member Orientation becomes available online, new REALTOR® applicants will be required to complete New Member Orientation before obtaining electronic key box access, and within 60 days to continue receiving any other services.
New Member Orientation dates:

Tuesday, October 9
