Who should run for RECO’s Board of Directors?
Serving on RECO’s board is an opportunity to have influence and help shape the future of the real estate profession in Ontario. Interested candidates should be passionate about the profession and how it is regulated, with a commitment to consumer protection.

RECO is seeking candidates who possess the skills, experience and expertise necessary to perform the Board’s strategic leadership and oversight responsibilities. In order to accomplish this work, Directors are expected to use their best efforts to help RECO achieve its goals and fulfill its mandate. That means being informed about key issues, participating in key discussions, and showing commitment to the Director role.

What should you expect as a Director?
The Board of Directors meets approximately six times a year. In addition to Board meetings, Directors normally chair or serve as a member of at least two Committees, and may be asked to attend conferences and other events as a representative of RECO. A potential Director should take these time commitments into consideration.

When does voting open?
Voting opens on Monday, March 12, 2018, and closes on Monday, March 26, 2018.
