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.
