Payment Plans Available
May I make partial payments?
If you are a REALTOR® member and your primary membership is held with DeKalb REALTORS®, you will have a Payment Plan option when making payment online. In addition to the renewal amount, an administration fee of $16 will be added if you choose to participate in the Payment Plan. Four equal installments will be applied to your credit card: first, on the day you enroll; followed by October 25, November 25, and December 25. Y To avoid the first rate increase, you must enroll prior to October 1. The Order Summary screen will still reflect the full amount of the membership renewal.
Please note this plan is available only online and payments will be processed automatically to the credit card information you provide. The payment plan is only available to renewing members, not new member applications, and you must renew online by October 24th in order to take advantage of this payment plan. Members utilizing the payment plan that are not paid in full by December 25, 2018 will incur a $75 rate increase.
By signing up for the payment plan online, I give authorization to the DeKalb REALTORS® to charge my credit/debit card account for my 2019 membership renewal on the specified installment dates. All payments are non-refundable.
Did the renewal amount increase?
The 2019 National Association of REALTORS® dues increase is $30, which includes $17 dedicated to REALTOR Party programming and $13 for operating programing. This will fund new programming known as the Strategic Measures Advancing REALTORS to Tomorrow (SMART). For more information, please visit: www.NAR.realtor/smartbudget.

Do I have to invest in RPAC?
Your renewal invoice online includes a voluntary RPAC investment which is strongly encouraged, but is ultimately voluntary. Please note that RPAC saves the typical REALTOR® nearly $25,000 each year and, without RPAC, you would be paying significantly more in operating costs annually. As you go through the prompts to pay online, you have the ability to modify and/or remove the RPAC amount (you will see an edit link next to the RPAC amount) just before you input your credit card information.
Is the NAR Consumer Advertising Campaign contribution optional?
Each year, your Renewal Statement contains a separate line item for the NAR Consumer Advertising Campaign.
The Consumer Advertising Campaign (also known as the National Consumer Awareness Campaign) will allow NAR to deliver messages quickly and effectively to consumers and public policymakers about issues that matter to REALTORS® and their clients – issues like access to affordable mortgage financing, tax incentives to home ownership, overly stringent credit requirements and cumbersome short sales and foreclosures.
As you may know, the Consumer Advertising Campaign remains one of the most popular programs among NAR members… 95% of REALTORS® favored the advertising program, and 91% would like to see more NAR advertising that protects homeownership, promotes real estate investment, and advances the REALTOR® profession.
While this line item is distinct from your NAR dues, it is not optional. For more information on the Consumer Advertising Campaign, please visit www.nar.realtor/
What if I miss the deadline?
For members who have not renewed in full by the following dates, a rate increase will be applied:
October 1st, $25
November 1st, $25
December 1st, $25
For members participating in a Payment Plan, the renewal amount will not increase if paid in full by December 25th. After December 25th, a $75 increase will be applied.
As you go through the prompts to pay online, you have the ability to modify and/or remove the RPAC amount (you’ll see an edit link next to the RPAC amount) just before you input your credit card information.
