Nebraska Membership Campground Act Application Procedures
Please read the information set forth here and the instructions on the application form before completing the application as an operator or salesperson. Also refer to the Nebraska Membership Campground Act when completing the applications.
Under the Nebraska Membership Campground Act, a membership camping operator and a salesperson employed by a membership camping operator must register with the Nebraska Real Estate Commission before offering to sell or before selling membership camping contracts in the State of Nebraska.
A membership camping operator is any individual, partnership, firm, corporation or association who owns or operates a campground and offers or sells agreements evidencing a purchaser's right to use a campground for more than thirty days during the term of a membership camping contract when such agreements are paid for by a fee or periodic payments. Operators of mobile home parks, as defined in Section 76-1464, R.R.S. Nebraska 1943, and individuals, partnerships, firms, corporations or associations who are tax exempt under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, are exempt from the Nebraska Membership Campground Act.
A salesperson is defined under the Act as any individual, other than a membership camping operator, who obtains commitments of persons to enter into membership camping contracts by making direct sales presentations. Persons licensed as real estate brokers or real estate salespersons under the Nebraska Real Estate License Act do not need to register under this Act as a membership camping salesperson.
The recent photograph required of all salesperson applicants should be a photo of the applicant only, head and shoulders, no smaller than 2" x 2" and taken within the last year. Snapshots will be accepted if they meet the above specifications.
When filing either a Registration application for a membership camping operator or for a salesperson, the applicant must answer each question fully and include all attachments requested in the application, or attachments necessary to fully answer the questions asked, and include the application fee. Any check returned by a financial institution is subject to a $35.00 processing fee.
Any application which is not complete, or for which the correct fee is not included, will be returned to the applicant.
