Meet the New RCEs

These 20 REALTOR® association executives earned their RCE (Realtor® association Certified Executive) designation after an extensive course of study and exam in March.

RCE is the only professional designation created specifically for Realtor® association executives. It exemplifies goal-oriented AEs with drive, experience, and commitment to professional growth. Candidates earn the designation by accumulating points through an experience- and education-based application form and a comprehensive written exam.
