Dues FAQs

How do I renew online?

Our online renewal page is here. Please note: Online renewal for active members is only available during renewal season, which begins in November and runs until the deadline of each year.

Can I make payments?

GCAR collects the dues fees for all three associations and is responsible for dispersing the monies to the proper organizations by a certain date. For this reason we require payment in full.

Do I have to pay NYSAR and NAR?

Yes, being a member of a local association also requires state and national membership.

Do I have to pay RPAC?

RPAC is a voluntary investment and is not a requirement. The RPAC fundraising year is aligned with the calendar year. Investments made on your dues bill will be credited and recognized for the year in which they are collected.

If I pay my dues and then later put my license into an inactive status, can I get a refund?

No, dues are non refundable.
