Richard D’Ascoli, CEO of the Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors® is being honored by the National Association of Realtors® with the Realtor® association certified executive (RCE) designation, which recognizes exceptional efforts made by the Realtor® associationexecutives.
Richard is one of over 400 Realtor association executives who have achieved this mark of excellence.
Local and state association executives who hold the RCE designation represent more than 750,000 Realtors® in 51 states.
“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,” D’Ascoli 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.
D’Ascoli will receive a plaque from representatives of the California Association of Realtors® during their May meetings.
