Nov 25, 2020

In the coming weeks, REIC members will receive their 2021 membership renewal package, and now is a perfect time to review all of the benefits you can gain as a member of REIC.

As a not-for-profit membership organization, REIC is dedicated to advancing education and professionalism across the real estate industry. Membership with REIC demonstrates to your peers and the public that you are a well-credentialed and highly qualified real estate professional with the highest regard for ethics and professional development.

As a member of REIC, you have access to member networking and support that are critical to helping you advance your career. You can connect and collaborate with your peers, develop life-long connections, and grow your business and knowledge. Networking is a large part of membership through events, chapter activities, and REIC’s LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter community.

Another vital part of being a member is the resources and information provided to you. REIC’s e-News provides education updates and industry alerts, and REIC Exchange magazine provides updates, sector news, career and professional development, and more!

In addition, we provide members with the opportunity to gain visibility and exposure through a complimentary listing in our online membership directory. The Designation marketing toolkits provide tips on how to market your designation(s) and you can use the REIC logo. And, on top of all of these benefits, along with membership also comes member-only discounts for REIC course tuitions and event registration.

At REIC, we take pride in taking care of our members and making sure they are getting the best experiences possible through our courses, our resources, networking, and volunteer opportunities. So, what are you waiting for? Renew or join REIC membership today and discover a whole world of possibilities!
