Greetings from Michigan Realtors®! View the top 5 news and resources for the month of March.
1. Michigan’s March to Victory!
Michigan Realtors® will be competing against other state associations to see who can recruit the most RPAC Investors, and raise the most funds, during the Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC) March online campaign! Tip-off begins now, and the competition runs through April 5th!
2. Register for the Broker Summit | April 20 | Troy
The Michigan Realtors® Broker Summit is a one day event that brings together elite brokers and Realtors® from around the state to address current real estate and market trends. This year, we are pleased to host our 14th annual conference on April 20th at the Somerset Inn, Troy. Attend CE Marketplace Certified knowledge sessions and industry expert panels. Keynote speakers include Leigh Thomas Brown, Paul Bishop and Bing Goei.
3. CE Marketplace News | Code of Ethics Requirement Changes
The Code of Ethics (COE) requirement now runs every two years. We are currently in Cycle 5, covering the period January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2018. NAR's Board Policy group has released the Cycle 5 course online at www.nar.realtor.
Changes Impacting 2017 CE - Realtor® Code of Ethics
Although CE Marketplace will continue to certify Code of Ethics courses for CE credits, they will no longer be certified as Legal CE. This change is prompted by the new NAR-mandated, 2-year cycle for Code of Ethics training. Because of the frequency of the new requirement, it would now be possible for a member to take a course concentrated on the Code of Ethics as Legal CE two out of three years in the licensing cycle. While ethical and legal education often meet at a crossroad, the importance of Legal CE offerings focused on current legal trends, case law, and industry-specific legal topics could be diminished without a clearer distinction. As of February 1, 2017, any CE Marketplace certified COE will be recorded as Elective credits.
4. Letter of The Law: Earnest Money Deposits
This monthly videos series highlights topics generated by input from you, the viewer. The March installment covers earnest money deposits.
