New Member Orientation & Ethics Training

All new West San Gabriel Valley REALTORS® (WSGVR) members applying for REALTOR® membership for the first time must attend a New Member Orientation program, and a minimum of 2.5 hours on the National Association of REALTOR® Code of Ethics. This requirement must be fulfilled within the first 90 days of submitting a new member application. Failure to complete this requirement within the 90 day requirement will result in termination of membership. However, due to the association office being closed due to COVID-19, a 60-day extension has been granted starting July 17, 2020.

The New Member Orientation program covers topics necessary for you, as a REALTOR®, to conduct yourself professionally and ethically including Anti-trust, Fair Housing, building your business, multiple listing services, and basics of the Association.
