RECA recognized for education, communication
The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) was recently recognized for its educational and communications efforts with two awards from the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO).
RECA, a non-government agency responsible for governing the industry under Alberta’s Real Estate Act, won an education award for its pre-licensing education course, the Practice of Rural Real Estate, and a communications award for the 2016 edition of the Advertising Guidelines.
The awards were presented at ARELLO’s annual conference in late September in Vancouver.
ARELLO, an international association of real estate regulators, presents education and communication awards each year in recognition of outstanding systems and programs that contribute to the real estate industry, promote public protection, and might be adapted to benefit licensees and consumers in other ARELLO member jurisdictions. The association has 63 jurisdictions, from 11 countries, as members.
ARELLO noted that RECA’s Practice of Rural Real Estate course will help lead to professional licensees who are able to practice real estate in compliance with legislation, and competently serve the real estate needs of rural buyers and sellers.
It selected the most recent edition of RECA’s Advertising Guidelines as an example of regulatory communication that enhances consumer protection, while improving the industry and helping RECA achieve its mandate.
