The BC Real Estate Association (BCREA) Board of Directors is seeking an appointee for the Real Estate Foundation of BC’s Board of Governors. This appointment term would commence April 1, 2022.

About the Real Estate Foundation of BC

In August 1985 the British Columbia real estate industry, in cooperation with the BC Ministry of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, established the Real Estate Foundation as a non-profit corporation under the Real Estate Act. On January 1, 2005, the Real Estate Services Act and the Real Estate Development Marketing Act replaced the Real Estate Act. The Foundation continued under the Real Estate Services Act.

The purpose of the Foundation is to undertake and carry out real estate public and professional education, real estate law reform, real estate research and other projects intended for the public or professional good in relation to real estate activities and to undertake and carry out projects and activities that the Minister designates as being in the public interest.

While previous experience as a governor is not required, it is important that Governors understand the roles and responsibilities of a member of a not-for-profit governing board and have the necessary experience and demonstrated skills to enable them to contribute to board planning, decision-making and oversight.

Time and Term Commitment

The amount of time a Governor spends on Foundation business varies from month to month, and from person to person.  A Governor can expect to spend a minimum of eight in-person days on Foundation business throughout the year. This does not include committee, meeting preparation or travel time.

In addition, Governors are requested—individually or as a Board—to attend special events from time to time.

Each member is appointed for a one to three-year term and may serve up to six years in a row.
