NVAR Interim CEO Teresa McKee earns CAE designation from ASAE

RENO, Nev. –  Teresa McKee, Interim CEO of the Nevada Association of REALTORS (NVAR), was recently honored by ASAE, the Center for Association Leadership, with its Certified Association Executive (CAE) credential, the highest credential in the association management industry recognizing the top 5 percent of association executives nationwide.

To earn the CAE credential, an association executive must have at least three years of association or nonprofit experience, complete at least 100 hours of specialized education, pass a stringent industry examination and pledge to uphold a strict code of ethics. To maintain the CAE designation, industry professionals must complete continuing education and other requirements. More than 4,000 industry professionals nationwide have earned this CAE designation

“This is quite an honor in our profession,” she said. “It’s as much about the quality of our members and association here at NVAR as it is about me.”

Before being named interim CEO of NVAR last year, McKee was the longtime legal counsel for the association. McKee has lived in the Reno area for more than 20 years. She received her law degree from Willamette University and her undergraduate degree from Carroll College.
