I need to transfer to another office…what do I do?

I can’t / don’t want to renew my membership

We are sorry you are leaving, but we understand. Please complete this form and submit to Jennifer Garula-Mers. Please remember to return all leased lockboxes, because if you are leasing a SUPRA “Active Key” and it is not returned…you will continue to get billed by SUPRA.

SUPRA

How do I obtain a Supra Key Device and/or Lockbox? 

Contact us at 941.474.6664 to schedule a convenient time that we can devote to your needs. Use of the Supra key devices and lockboxes are optional. Lockboxes are “leased” through EABOR. You do not purchase lockboxes, but pay an annual “lockbox admin fee” to use and access as many lockboxes as you need.

I’m having issues with my Supra device…what do I do?

You have a couple of options…you can contact SUPRA directly at 877.699.6787 or feel free to call the EABOR office at 941.474.6664.
