Becoming an Affiliate Member. Any real estate related Vendor or Supplier that works with, or services the real estate community can apply to join as Affiliate Member.
Affiliates do not have voting rights, but can volunteer for any committee.
If accepted as an Affiliate Member, the expectation of attendance is 60% of all general Membership Meetings to maintain Affiliate status for renewal.

IREIBA™ was started to be a place for Independent Brokers to go to for peer-to-peer training and support. As the organization grew and developed, the Members voted to add Affiliates.
To maintain IREIBA's integrity of purpose, it was decided that the number of Affiliate members should never exceed the number of Brokers. The Affiliate member count limit is set at less than 41% of the total membership.
The Board of Directors monitors the company types so that there are not too many of any one type of business. This is not an easy task and is regulated by the Board’s discretion.
Being a member of IREIBA™ is a prestigious honor. Affiliate members are not only looked up to within the Organization, but it also gives them creditability and hopefully earns them more business in and outside the Organization.
The Profiles of many of our Current & Active Affiliates appear in Meet the Members
Once an Affiliate has joined IREIBA™ through the application steps and process, they RENEW their Membership for the second year and every year annually in January along with the Broker Members.
