Home » RAM Member Application
I hereby apply for REALTOR® Membership in the REALTORS® Association of Maui. I understand that I will be granted provisional membership immediately upon submission of this completed application form, and remittance of applicable Association dues and any application fees. As a provisional member, I will be considered a REALTOR® and shall be subject to all of the same privileges and obligations of membership. Provisional membership is granted subject to subsequent review of the application by the Board of Directors. I further understand that if the Board determines that I do not meet all of the qualifications for membership as established in the Association’s Bylaws, my membership may be terminated.
I will complete the New Member Code of Ethics (COE) Training within ten (10) days of being granted provisional membership. Failure to satisfy this requirement will result in termination of provisional membership. (Go to http://www.realtor.org/coetraining for course info).
I will attend the mandatory Orientation program within sixty (60) calendar days from being granted provisional membership (appraisers are exempt). Failure to complete the mandatory Orientation will result in termination of membership.
Note: If you are a Designated REALTOR® (Principal Broker/Broker-In-Charge), sole proprietor, partner, corporate officer, limited liability company member/manager, or branch office manager, you are required to complete an Office Application.
I hereby certify that the foregoing information furnished by me is true and correct. I agree that failure to provide complete and accurate information, as requested, or any misstatement of fact, shall be grounds for revocation of membership, if confirmed by the Board of Directors.
By clicking “I agree” I consent to the following:
I will abide by the Code of Ethics of the National Association of Realtors®, including the obligation to arbitrate any existing or future controversies arising out of real estate transactions as specified by Article 17 of the Code of Ethics, and as further specified in the Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual of the National Association of Realtors®, as from time-to-time amended. If I am confirmed as a member and subsequently resign or otherwise cause membership to terminate in the Association or the Association’s Multiple Listing Service, the duty to submit to arbitration continues in effect even after membership lapses or is terminated, provided the dispute arose while I was a Realtor® member. I agree that I will participate in any proceedings and be bound by the findings as a result of such proceedings;
I also will submit to the pending ethics proceeding and will abide by the decision of the hearing panel. If I resign or otherwise cause membership to terminate in either an Association or Multiple Listing Service without having complied with disciplinary action imposed by a hearing Board panel(s), the Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon my compliance with said disciplinary action;
I will abide by the Constitution, Bylaws, Rules and Regulations of the Realtors® Association of Maui, the Hawaii Association of Realtors®, and the National Association of Realtors®. I understand membership brings certain privileges and obligations that require compliance. Membership is final only upon approval by the Board of Directors and may be revoked should completion of requirements, such as orientation, not be completed within the timeframe established in the Association Bylaws. I understand that I will be required to complete periodic Code of Ethics training as specified in the Association’s Bylaws as a continued condition of membership;
As an MLS Participant/Subscriber (if applicable), I will abide by the MLS Rules and Regulations, and understand that I am eligible to submit listings to the Association’s Multiple Listing Service;
My payment for membership dues and any applicable MLS fees will be refunded if my membership is not confirmed by the RAM Board of Directors at its next regularly scheduled meeting;
My annual dues are due by 5:00 p.m. on the last business day of September without notice. If my membership is terminated for non-payment of dues, and I wish to reactivate my Association membership, I will be responsible for payment of current prorated membership dues, and all late fees and application fees that prevailed at the time of my termination. I further agree that, if accepted for membership in RAM, I shall pay the fees and dues as from time-to-time established. (Note: Payments to RAM are not deductible as charitable contributions. Such payments may, however, be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense.);
It is my responsibility to notify RAM in writing of any changes in the status of my office/firm affiliation, real estate license, mailing address, or termination of Association services (fax or email copy of DCCA Real Estate Change form accepted). I will advise RAM of any changes in my phone number or email address either in writing (email accepted) or by phone. I understand that all contact information I have provided to RAM is available for dissemination to the public (upon request) and Realtor® members. I consent that the Realtor® Associations (local, state, national) and their subsidiaries, if any (e.g., MLS) may contact me at the specified address, telephone numbers, fax numbers, email address, or other means of communication available. This consent applies to changes in contact information that may be provided by me to the Association(s) in the future. This consent recognizes that certain state and federal laws may place limits on communications that I am waiving to receive all communications as part of my membership.
