New Members must attend and complete the New Member Orientation within 60 days of application (or within the first two available dates after application submittal, whichever is greater) or access to member services will be denied until the new member meets the requirement and is approved by the GAAR Board of Directors.
If the Designated REALTOR® does not meet the New Member Orientation requirement, all services to the brokerage and all REALTOR® members affiliated with the office will be discontinued.
Want to schedule yourself for orientation? Contact our member support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-842-1433, option 4.
Orientation Cancellation and Reschedule Policy
Members who want to cancel their attendance at an Orientation for which they are registered, must notify GAAR 24 hours in advance of the scheduled class to avoid being assessed a fee. If the member notifies GAAR of the cancellation less than 24 hours prior to the beginning of the class, the member will be assessed an “Administrative Reschedule Fee” of $10, which will be due upon receipt. If the member does not notify GAAR prior to the beginning of the class that they are unable to attend, and they are absent, the member will be assessed a “No Show Fee” of $50, which will be due upon receipt. These fee amounts should be paid immediately to avoid interruptions to service and benefits.
If an attendee arrives more than ten minutes after the class begins, they will be rescheduled for the next available class, if possible. However, this does not release the attendee from completing the Orientation requirement within 60 days of application (or within the first two available orientation dates after application submittal, whichever is greater). To retain full service and benefits, the member must contact the Membership staff to understand options and reschedule their attendance.
