Albuquerque - Kent Cravens, Executive Vice President of the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS®, is being honored by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® with the REALTORÒ association Certified Executive (RCE) designation, which recognizes exceptional efforts made by the REALTORÒ association executives.
Cravens is one of over 490 REALTOR® association executives who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state association executives who hold the RCE designation represent REALTORS® in 50 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,” Cravens 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.
Cravens will receive an award plaque from representatives of the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® during an upcoming event.
