Important Message Regarding COVID-19 from VPAR Leadership

In response to the growing public health concern regarding the COVID-19 virus, the Virginia Peninsula Association of REALTORS® is open for business however we are taking the precautionary steps to restrict office access to staff only. We are suspending all in-person meetings, appointments, classes, and events effective Monday, March 16 until further notice.  VPAR staff is committed to the continue services to our members using technology available.  VPAR will continue to review this policy daily as new information becomes available from the CDC and local government agencies.

►Classes/events. All classes and events are suspended. If you are currently registered for a class or event during this period, you will receive additional information as it is available. Online CE is available for license renewal. VPAR’s CE Shop is currently offering a 40% discount off all online CE with the promo code SUPPORT40 at checkout.

►The new member class requirement will be extended for any new members affected by the suspension.

►Committee meetings. Your staff liaison will provide alternatives to in-person meetings, as available.

►New member and eKEY appointments. All new-member appointments and eKEY assignments will be conducted over the phone.  To request any REALTOR® Store items or key boxes please call ahead to VPAR to arrange for pickup only.

We certainly hope that the risk posed by COVID-19 will pass in the near future. The decision your leadership team has made to temporarily change the way we are doing business is not taken lightly. The intent is to ensure we do not inadvertently expose our members, volunteers, and employees, nor contribute to the spread of the virus in our community. We appreciate your understanding and support, and we will continue to provide updates as things evolve. For additional information on COVID-19, please review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website and NAR’s guidance for REALTORS®.
