Joining the REALTOR® Family
When a licensee joins the Lewis County Association of REALTORS® they also join the State and National Associations of REALTORS®. Becoming a REALTOR® gives you access to industry information on local, state and national levels. Information is immediately available via the web (www.lewiscountyrealtors.com, www.warealtors.org, and www.realtor.org). In addition, the state and national associations publish magazines on a regular basis and the local association provides a periodic e-mail newsletter.
Membership in the association allows members to use the term REALTOR® in promotional materials, letting the public know you agree to abide by the REALTORS® Code of Ethics. The Code of Ethics sets a high standard for members to follow when conducting business. The local Board enforces the Code of Ethics and provides mediation and arbitration through the Washington REALTORS®.
Local membership provides networking opportunities through membership meetings hosted by the LCAR Board of Directors six times a year, where informational and educational speakers and discussions are on the agenda, as well. Monthly Realtor Night Out events are hosted by Realtor and Affiliate member offices as a way for members to network and socialize in a casual atmosphere. Other annual events include the Affiliate Showcase, Installation Banquet and community service projects.
