Examples of potential Vendor members include: Bankers, Realtors (promoting their services/properties), Insurance Companies, Title Companies, Rehab Contractors, Cleaning Companies, Trade Companies such as Electricians/Plumbers/HVAC…and more!

Individuals who are conducting investment deals on their own personal properties are NOT Vendor members. 

Vendor members have all the local memberships benefit rights as an active SCREIA member, including voting rights and membership in OREIA, as applicable.  Vendor members can attend other state REIA chapter meetings if the other REIA group honors the SCREIA vendor membership. 

Check with the OREIA chapter before you attend their meeting to inquire about their policies.
