NAR Changes Ethics Requirements - New 2 Year Cycle (2017-2018)

NAR mandates that Code of Ethics training be completed once per cycle by all its members.  In previous years, those cycles have been 4 years long. The new cycle began January 1, 2017, and is two years long. Therefore, all NAR members must complete Code of Ethics training between January 2017 and December 2018.

NOMAR already has several Code of Ethics classes scheduled throughout 2017, with more to come. You can find classes on NOMAR's online calendar. The first one offered will be at the Metairie office on Friday, February 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can register for the class here.

Remember - if you take your Code of Ethics training with a provider other than NOMAR, NOMAR does not receive notification of your completion, so please submit your Code of Ethics training certificate from the provider to us as soon as possible. You can fax it to (504) 888-1812 or email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The campaign goal is $75,000. Please look at Peter's story, a Patient Flyer is attached.
