I hereby apply for REALTOR® membership in the Greater Lewisville Association of REALTORS® (GLAR). I agree as a condition to membership to complete the Orientation course for GLAR if I am a Newly Licensed REALTOR® by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC), a newly licensed appraiser by the Texas Appraiser Licensing Board (TALCB), or transferring member who has not taken the Orientation within the past 2 years, if any, and otherwise on my own initiative to thoroughly familiarize myself with the “Code of Ethics”, of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, including the duty to arbitrate contractual and specific non-contractual disputes in accordance with Article 17 of the Code of Ethics and the Code of Ethics/Arbitration Manual of the National Association of REALTORS®, and the Constitution, Bylaws, and Rules and Regulations of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the State Association (TAR), and the Bylaws of the GLAR®. I further agree that my act of paying dues shall evidence my initial and continuing commitment to abide by the aforementioned Code of Ethics, Constitution, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations, and duty to arbitrate, all as from time to time to amended.
Applicant acknowledges that GLAR will maintain a file of information that may be shared with other Boards/Associations where applicant subsequently seeks membership. This file shall include previous applications of membership; all final findings of Code of Ethics violations and violations of other membership duties within the past (3) years; pending complaints alleging violations of the Code of Ethics or alleging violations of other membership duties; incomplete or pending disciplinary measures; pending arbitration request; and information related to unpaid arbitration awards or unpaid obligations to the Board or its Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Applicant acknowledges that if accepted as a Member and he/she subsequently resigns or is expelled from membership in the Association with an ethics complaint or arbitration request pending, the Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon applicant’s verification that he/she will submit to the pending ethics or arbitration proceedings and will abide by the decision of the Hearing Panel; or if applicant resigns or is expelled from membership without having complied with an award in arbitration. The Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon his/her payment of the award, plus any costs that have been established previously as due and payable in relation thereto provided that the award and such costs have not, in the interim, been otherwise satisfied.
