Process for AREA's Appointments to RECA Council


AREA appoints a total of six members to the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) as follows:

  • One member who trades in industrial, commercial and investment real estate;
  • One member who trades in residential real estate;
  • One member from nominations received from the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB®);
  • One member from nominations received from the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton (RAE); and
  • Two members from nominations received from other real estate boards in Alberta.
All appointments to Council are for a three-year term, with a maximum of two consecutive terms served.

AREA's appointees to Council for the term beginning November 1, 2016 and concluding October 31, 2016 are:

  • Bobbi Dawson - Grande Prairie & Area Association of REALTORS® - from members of the real estate boards outside of Edmonton and Calgary
  • Bill Kirk - from members of the Calgary Real Estate Board
  • Brian Klingspon - from members of the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton

The Process for Selection
When AREA is appointing members from the Boards/Associations, AREA encourages members to send applications directly to your Board/Association. AREA asks that applications include the following:

  • Resume
  • Cover Letter outlining member's interest in sitting on Council
Following the window for receiving applications, the Boards/Associations will submit a list of nominees to AREA. AREA aims to have at least three potential nominees for each of the appointment categories.

In years when AREA is appointing the members representing residential and commercial / industrial real estate respectively, AREA will receive the applications from interested members directly.

Once the nominations have been submitted, AREA undertakes an interview process with the identified nominees to determine the successful appointees. RECA is then notified of those appointments approximately 8 weeks in advance of the beginning of the appointees' respective terms.
