The Real Estate Council of Alberta’s (RECA) corporate services department’s mandate includes financial administration, human resources, information technology (“IT”), communications and office administration.
Corporate services is responsible for the preparation of RECA’s operating budget, financial reporting, investment of the assurance and operating funds, payroll and benefits administration, and office administration, including the management of RECA’s leased office space.
Corporate services also coordinates, through a third-party IT services contractor, the management of the IT infrastructure, which includes the IT network and the development and maintenance of the RECA Online system and the MOODLE education platform.
The remaining responsibility of corporate services is communications, with the industry, the general public and internally. Communications is responsible for regular communications to the industry via RECA News emails, Regulator newsletters, social media and an Annual Report, among other things, and ensuring the public is aware of activities within Alberta’s real estate, mortgage brokerage and real estate appraisal industries.
Corporate Services ensures RECA has the capacity to achieve its vision of excellence in self-regulation, specifically, by providing the necessary resources and technology.
