CCIAOR Statement on COVID-19
March 12, 2020 Events & Programs Updates, COVID-19
In light of the rapidly evolving conditions related to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person classes and events from now until mid-April. While there are no reported cases on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket, we feel the need to take precautionary steps to protect our members, instructors, and speakers. While we are disappointed to cancel and postpone our upcoming programs, our member’s and staff’s health and safety are our top priorities when making decisions under these circumstances. During this period the association's physical office will be closed to walk-ins for the safety of our staff, members and community. We are happy to work with you via phone, video call or email to resolve any issues or answer any questions you may have.
Below is a quick update of where our upcoming events and classes stand:
Cape Cod Real Estate Conference on April 2nd - POSTPONED
We are postponing the Cape Cod Real Estate Conference scheduled for April 2nd. We are working with the Wequassett Resort to find a suitable date and hope to hold it in the fall. This comes on the heels of at least one of our speakers having to cancel and many of them having to fly to come here. We will be refunding everyone that has paid within the next few days. We will also be postponing the RPAC Major Investor Event scheduled for the evening before the conference.
Continuing Education Classes through April 17th - CANCELLED
All live CE classes through April 17th have been canceled. We are looking into offering live webinar classes instead and will share details with our members as soon as possible.
If your license is expiring in the next few months, we suggest you take advantage of your free online continuing education REALTOR® benefit. This will ensure that any class cancellations will not interfere with your license renewal requirements. Click here for step by step instructions for taking MAR Classes online for free.
Short Term Rental CE Classes & Events in March & April - POSTPONED
Our Short Term Rental Classes and Events are being rescheduled. We are very excited about the brand new Short Term Rental CE Class, which CCIAOR wrote. We will evaluate each location individually (West Yarmouth, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket) as we look at the rescheduled dates. We understand the importance of this course and the value of offering it before the summer season and will do our best to bring them to our membership as soon as possible.
March 24th REALTOR Social at Cape Space - CANCELLED
The March REALTOR Social at Cape Space on March 24th has been canceled. We will reschedule with Kandy Korner and Cape Cod Package Store later this year.
New Member Orientation on April 7th - CANCELLED
We are canceling our New Member Orientation class scheduled for April 7th. The next date these classes will be offered is June 11th.
Resort and Second Home Specialist Certification (RSPS) on April 30 - TO BE DETERMINED
As of now, we are still planning to hold the RSPS Certification class on April 30th. As we get closer to this date, we will evaluate if we need to cancel or reschedule. We will reach out to anyone registered with additional details as we get closer to the class date.
Please continue to check cciaor.com for any updates about class cancellations or rescheduling, and continue to read CCIAOR email newsletters for critical information. We also recommend you review NAR’s Coronavirus Guidance for Realtors®.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
