HAPPY THANKSGIVING !
DUES DEADLINE WAS NOVEMER 15.…..$50 LATE FEE IS NOW
Thank you to all who got their dues in before the November 15, 2009 deadline. You are now paid up until the end of 2010! This was your annual local association, state and national dues.
The required $50 Late Fee is now being assessed. If Dues are not received by December 31, 2009,
a $100 Late Fee is assessed and your membership is then terminated. Terminated members names are forwarded to GSREIN, where your MLS Service is interrupted. Reinstatement fees are then attached.
Any checks that are returned NSF or Visa/MasterCard credit cards that are declined, will be assessed a $25 fee for every attempt we have to make to process your full payment.
It’s great to have all of you back and so wonderful to meet all the many new members who have transferred over to NABOR. Welcome back, NABOR!
REMIND YOUR COLLEAGUES THEY CAN STILL SAVE $50 ……
Between now and Christmas of 2009, the NABOR Office is waiving the regular $50 Transfer Fee for agents interested in transferring from another board to NABOR. Tell your colleagues. Happy Holidays!
Why should I pay a voluntary LARPAC contribution on my dues statement? Your annual dues statement contains one way to make a voluntary contribution to the Louisiana REALTORS® Political Action Committee (LARPAC). These LARPAC funds are used to support political candidates who listen to REALTOR® positions on issues affecting your business. LARPAC also supports or works to defeat issues by getting involved in advocacy campaigns. Your contributions keep the Realtor political voice heard.

We have telephoned all of the raffle prize winners from the Chili Challenge. If you won one of the great raffle prizes at the chili fest, you must claim your gift at the NABOR Office this week.
