Despite the challenges of the last couple of years, the member boards and BCREA have agreed on the first step of a plan to move forward together.
Beginning April 1, 2018, the annual provincial dues REALTORS® pay to BCREA will be reduced to $144 from $232. This is a direct result of concerns expressed by the member boards, and their request that we do more with less. BCREA will focus on the core provincial services: government relations, economics, education, standard forms, communications and the arbitration of interboard commission disputes.
Most implementation details will be determined after Darlene Hyde takes on the position of Chief Executive Officer, effective January 22. Darlene has extensive experience leading non-profit organizations, in the fields of commercial real estate, energy, insurance, automotive retail and telecommunications. Her work in stakeholder and government relations, advocacy, communications and governance will serve BCREA well.
Any implementation plan will include specific ways for BCREA to evaluate the changes and report regularly to member boards. Ensuring the continued value of BC REALTORS® continues to be BCREA's purpose, and is a great starting point for accountability.
