SWRA Membership Renewal Training

In October of 2008, the Suburban West membership overwhelming approved a change to the organization’s bylaws outlining a Membership Renewal Training requirement for all REALTOR® members of Suburban West REALTORS® Association. This decision came from numerous discussions with brokers and salespersons on ways the organization could raise the standard of professionalism amongst the members so that the Suburban West REALTOR® can provide a greater service to their clients while raising the overall image of the REALTOR®.

For the 2015-2016 cycle, the Association (with the approval of its Board of Directors) has developed the 2 ½-hour training class "Passing the Fair Housing Test". 

Facts about the Requirement:

  • The Membership Renewal Training requirement is every two years beginning January 1, 2009. The current deadline for the 2015-2016 cycle is December 31, 2016.
  • Completion of the Membership Renewal Training requirement class in the 2015-2016 cycle also satisfies the the 2013-2016 NAR Quadrennial Code of Ethics training requirement.
  • REALTOR® members of Suburban West must complete a prescribed class.
  • There is no cost to attend the Membership Renewal Training class but registration is required.
  • The class is offered primarily at Suburban West REALTORS® Association office in Malvern but also is scheduled for off-site locations throughout the area. There is NOT an online option for the class.
  • The class is presented to new Suburban West REALTOR® members at New Member Orientation. If you’ve attended a New Member Orientation session since January 2015, you have completed the 2015-2016 requirement.
  • Failure to complete the training by December 31, 2016 will result in the suspension of membership and subject  to discontinued access to services (i.e. zipForms, DocuSign, electronic keypad service, RPR, use of the term REALTOR®, free attendance to Association seminars and events, the PAR legal hotline, use of Designations and much more) from Suburban West REALTORS® Association, Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS® and National Association of REALTORS®. On March 1, 2017, any membership still suspended will be automatically terminated.
