Calgary, Alberta—After more than 22 years of dedicated service to the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA), Executive Director, Bob Myroniuk, advised RECA’s Council that he will retire from RECA at the end of August.
Mr. Myroniuk joined RECA when it was founded on April 22, 1996. He was RECA’s first employee and only Executive Director.
“On behalf of the Council and all RECA employees, I’d like to thank Bob for his professionalism, dedication, and unwavering commitment to the goals and objectives of RECA,” said Rob Telford, Council Chair. “We wish him the very best and will miss him.”
Through his leadership, RECA is recognized as one of the leading real estate regulatory jurisdictions in North America. In 2006, Mr. Myroniuk was President of the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO), and in 2014 he was the founding Chair of the Real Estate Regulators of Canada.
Prior to joining RECA, Mr. Myroniuk was a lawyer in private practice and served as the Executive Director with the Government of Alberta in Housing and Consumer Affairs. In this position he was responsible for the development of the Real Estate Act of Alberta (1995) and implementing a transition from government regulation to self-regulation of the real estate industry.
He earned his Bachelor of Science and Law degrees from the University of Alberta, and he has a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Victoria.
An executive search consultant will assist a Council appointed selection committee in the search for RECA’s next Executive Director. The committee includes one Council member from each of the four industry sectors and the public member appointed to Council by the Minister of Service Alberta.
RECA will announce more details about the opportunity in the coming months.
RECA is the independent governing authority that sets, regulates, and enforces standards for real estate brokerage, mortgage brokerage, property management and real estate appraisal professionals in Alberta.
