Frequently Asked Questions

Can I download a membership application on-line?
It's an on-line application process so there's no need to download it.

I am not certain if I am an Associate member or a Regular member.
Associate members are firms that provide services and products to the real estate industry, including but not limited to lawyers, consultants, accountants, designers, contractors and architects. Regular members are those who are property/facility/asset managers, developers or building engineers. Another way to look at the distinction is that Associate members perform tenant improvement design and construction, install a new roof, provide building maintenance and security, sell a product, etc.

What is the cost of membership?
Membership dues are determined on an annual basis and are based on individual members. 

One property manager for one year is $595.  Additional employees from a property management firm are $450 each.  If there are four or more people, at a property management firm, you can apply for a corporate membership,for up to six members for $1,866. 

An associate or a vendor member would pay $765.  Additional people from the vendor firm would pay $650 each.

We pro-rate the dues from July - September by 60%.

If you join in the months of October, November or December you will pay the annual fees (listed above), so it is like getting 15 months of membership for the cost of 12, if you join in October.

All memberships expire December 31st.  E-invoices will be sent beginning in October.  If you are unable to pay your annual membership fees by March 15, your membership will be suspended.  Vendors, to re-join, must go on the waiting list. 

I would like my building to join. How do you compute the membership dues?
Membership is based on individual members, not on square footage that you manage. If you have more than one person from your property management firm join, we can discuss a corporate membership, which has you pay for six members at cost.

Since I am joining during the year are dues prorated?
Yes, dues are prorated by 60% in the months of July, August and September.

Is the membership for one person or for the company?
One person. Unless your property management firm has a corporate membership. Remember though, if you leave that company, the membership stays with the company that paid, it does not get transferred to the person who left.


How many people may I add to my membership and is there a cost for additional people?
You can add as many as you like. Bear in mind that we have a reduced rate for additional members from your firm. We also have a waiting list for our associate/vendor members.  If you currently have a vendor membership, you can add another vendor from your firm for $650 + sponsor an additional corporate member for $311.
