VIII. Certification:

I certify that the above information is true and correct and that failure to provide complete information as requested or any misstatement of fact shall be grounds for denial of membership or revocation of my membership.

I understand that I shall be granted provisional membership immediately upon submission of a completed application form and remittance of applicable association dues and any application fee, which will be returned to me in the event I am not accepted to membership. As a provisional member, I shall be considered a REALTOR® and shall be subject to all of the same privileges and obligations of membership including a commitment to abide by the Code of Ethics, the Bylaws and Rules of the REALTORS® Association of Lincoln and Midlands MLS. I understand that the temporary status created by Provisional membership is granted subject to subsequent review of the application in accordance with Association Bylaws. If the Board of Directors determines that I do not meet all of the qualifications for membership as established in the Association's Bylaws, or if I do not satisfy all of the requirements of membership such as the completion of a mandatory orientation program, membership may, at the discretion of the Board of Directors, be terminated.

Applicant acknowledges that if accepted to membership and he/she subsequently resigns or is expelled from membership with an ethics complaint or arbitration request pending, the Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon applicant's verification that he/she will submit to the pending ethics or arbitration proceeding and will abide by the decision of the Hearing Panel; or if applicant resigns or is expelled from membership without having complied with an award in arbitration, the Board of Directors may condition renewal of membership upon his/her payment of the award, plus any costs that have been established previously as due and payable in relation thereto, provided that the award and such costs have not, in the interim, been otherwise satisfied.

I also authorize the association to invite and receive information and comment about me from any Member or other person. I agree that any information and comment about me from any Member or other person in response to any such invitation shall be conclusively deemed to be privileged and not form the basis of any action by me for slander, libel, or defamation of character.
