Affiliate Business Partner membership with the West Volusia Association of REALTORS offers you and your company opportunities to network, participate and stay up to date on all things Real Estate coming out of the West Volusia Association of REALTORS.
The WVAR By-Laws describe an affiliate member as follows:
Article IV – Membership, Section 3
Affiliate Members shall be real estate owners and other individuals or firms who, while not engaged in the real estate profession as defined within the bylaws, have interests requiring information concerning real estate, and are in sympathy with the objectives of the Association.
When you join this association at the annual dues rate of $125.00, you are now a part of the REALTOR family and our effort to keep the REALTOR at the center of the transaction and create a more orderly marketplace.
