RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA -- Casey Angel, Vice President of Policy & Engagement, and Melissa Kolodziej, Director of Community Relations of the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® are being honored by the National Association of REALTORS® with the REALTOR® association Certified Executive (RCE) designation, which recognizes exceptional efforts made by the REALTOR® association executives.
Angel and Kolodziej are just two of over 500 REALTOR® association executives who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state association executives who hold the RCE designation represent REALTORS® in 49 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,” Kolodziej said.
"Serving alongside our wonderful staff, volunteer leaders, and REALTOR® Members for the betterment of our industry is what makes this designation so special, I could not be more excited," Angel 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.
Angel and Kolodziej will receive an award plaque from representatives of the North Carolina REALTORS® during an upcoming event.
