CCISA: Congratulates RECA Board of Directors and Industry Councils

Real Estate Council Alberta Update

The Real Estate Amendment Act came into effect on December 1, 2020. Over the past number of months, stakeholder project teams were busily assisting with the restructuring and implementation of these changes. This new governance model for RECA includes a Board of Directors and four industry-specific representatives. The Industry Council represent residential real estate, commercial real estate, property management and mortgage broker licensees in Alberta.

 

Each of the four elected Industry Councils met between December 11 and December 14 to appoint their Board Member and determine their Industry Council Chair and Vice-Chair. Additional information on terms and appointments can be found on RECA’s website. (reca.ca)
