As part of BCREA’s recent governance changes, the BCREA Board will now include two public Board members in addition to nine REALTOR® directors. As such, the Board is presently seeking candidates for the two volunteer public Board member positions and welcomes interest from qualified individuals.
The Board’s governance role involves a wide range of responsibilities, including collaborating on, and approving, BCREA’s strategic goals and objectives, ensuring qualified management, overseeing BCREA’s business and activities, reviewing its material risks, and overseeing a succession planning process to ensure continued leadership. The BCREA Board meets approximately six time per year, with attendance at additional BCREA events (e.g. Annual General Meeting) required as well.
As a member of the Board, you have the ability to provide wise, thoughtful counsel on a broad range of governance issues, a preference for team performance over individual performance, high performance standards and respect for others. Board members are expected to serve on board committees according to organizational requirements and are remunerated for their time and travel expenses.
Preferred candidates will bring experience interacting with government and elected officials at the municipal, provincial or federal level; experience developing and overseeing adult education programs; experience around leadership performance management and succession planning; significant experience in understanding financial statements of an organization similar in size and complexity as BCREA; experience serving on a board in a leadership capacity; familiarity with IT trends in the workplace; significant experience in the area of real estate law; experience leading or participating in significant organizational change; and/or significant experience in effective communications with stakeholders in a member-based environment.
