Kyle Anderson, CEO of the Glen Carbon-based Greater Gateway Association of Realtors, is being honored by the National Association of Realtors with the Realtor association Certified Executive (RCE) designation, which recognizes exceptional efforts made by Realtor association executives.
Anderson is one of at least 525 Realtor association executives who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state association executives who hold the RCE designation represent Realtors in 48 states/territories.
“This is truly an honor and I am very proud to be receiving this designation. It is a high point in my career as an association executive,” Anderson said.
Prior to becoming a candidate for the RCE designation, applicants must document their association management and academic experiences. Once they have completed this first step, eligible candidates must successfully complete a multiple choice exam, which is based on a comprehensive understanding of association operations and management practices. Candidates must demonstrate knowledge of areas critical to Realtor association management, including association law, governance and issues related to member services. To retain the designation, RCEs must be recertified every four years.
Anderson will receive an award plaque from representatives of the Illinois Association of Realtors during an upcoming event.
