LAS VEGAS – Tiffany James, communications director for the Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS (GLVAR), was honored this month by the National Association of REALTORS with its REALTOR Certified Executive (RCE) designation recognizing exceptional efforts made by association executives.
James, a longtime Las Vegan and GLVAR executive, is one of more than 425 REALTOR association executives nationwide who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state association executives who hold the RCE designation represent REALTORS in 48 states and U.S. territories.
“This is a significant honor and accomplishment for people in our profession,” said GLVAR CEO Michele Caprio, who also holds the RCE designation. “Tiffany worked hard to earn this and gain the additional expertise that will benefit her, our association and our members for years to come.”
Before 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 an exam 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, according to NAR.
James will receive an award from GLVAR representatives and be recognized by NAR and GLVAR in various ways.
