AEs have to be able to recognize opportunities, capitalize on resources, communicate concisely, and never stop expanding their own knowledge. This definition of success is a perfect fit for Angela Shields, RCE, CAE, CEO of the San Antonio Board of REALTORS®, Texas.

Associations are moving away from being perceived as a governing body that provides services to REALTORS® and toward recognition as a group of professionals that represents the interests of REALTORS® and home owners in the community.

Theresa Hatton, RCE, executive director of the 800-member Greenwich Association of REALTORS® in Connecticut, received the NAR Leaders of Tomorrow Young Professionals Award at the 2015 REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Diego. The award recognizes younger AEs who have fostered greater involvement and increased professionalism among their peers and REALTOR® members.

The Columbia Board of REALTORS® in Missouri now offers its members the personal security device Guard Llama - a Bluetooth-enabled fob that syncs with an app - as a member benefit to address ongoing concerns about REALTOR® safety.

These 19 REALTOR® AEs earned their REALTOR® association Certified Executive designation after an extensive course of study and exam. RCE is the only designation created specifically for REALTOR® association executives.

Attracting younger generations to volunteer at your association can be difficult, but harder still may be attracting young professionals to work there. How can you entice talented young people to your organization and encourage them to pursue a career in REALTOR® association management?
