A licensee may join any REALTOR® Association they choose without their broker being a member at that association as a "secondary member".

An individual is a secondary member if they pay current state or national dues through another association or board. A Letter of Good Standing is required from your primary association or board. The New Member Code of Ethics class will be waived provided you have completed the NAR Code of Ethics class during the previous cycle (this must be stated in the Letter of Good Standing).

Secondary membership grants the member the benefits of primary membership along with certain services or protections of REALTOR® membership.
