Dues:  Yearly dues comprise of State, Local and National Dues and are due each year no later than 12/31.  A late fee goes into effect on January 1st with no exceptions.  ALL dues must be paid online.  We accept MC/Visa and online e checks.   To pay dues click on the pay dues link at the bottom of our home page.  You must have your NRDS# to pay dues.  Can’t find your NRDS#?  Your Realtor Magazine has your NRDS# right on your address label or go to www.realtor.org and check via your last name or email address.  It’s a good idea to keep your NRDS# in a convenient place, since you will need this to pay dues each year!

Board of Choice:  The Board of Choice concept allows REALTORS® to choose the board to which they want to belong on the basis of factors they decide are the most important to them.

 What is the difference between Primary & Secondary Membership?  An individual is a primary member of a board if that board remits State and National dues are remitted through another board.  Since National dues are only paid once, there is only one primary board.
