For New Member Orientation


The California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.), has prepared the following New Member Orientation materials to help educate your new members on the importance of REALTOR® Action Fund (RAF).  All New Member Orientation must have one of the items that are marked with an * to be in compliance.  You do not need all three, please choose the one that fits for your local Association.

RAF Video: 
This Video was designed specifically for new member orientation.  C.A.R. created a short, but concise video that can be shared to explain the importance of REALTOR Action Fund (RAF) and it provides a great opportunity when it is done to make the “ask” and provide some local issues that benefited from RAF funds.

*RAF Pledge Cards for New Member Orientation Deposits:  Many local associations ask for a “$20 deposit” to reserve a spot to attend New Member Orientation.  After you show the RAF Video, it the opportunity to ask the member if they would like their $20 deposit to be used as their first RAF Contribution.  If the member says yes, please have them complete this form.  For more information on this, please contact C.A.R. staff, Lisa Edwards at [email protected]

*RAF New Member Contribution form:  Must include this form in all New Member Orientations to be in compliance. This form ensures that New Members are provided the proper disclosures.

*RAF Pledge Card:  This pledge card does not ask for any type of credit card information, it is simply a “pledge card” for the new member to complete and then someone from the local association will follow up to collect the funds.
