Created through the Alberta Real Estate Act, the Alberta Real Estate Foundation (the Foundation) is a non-profit organization that oversees, supports, and advances the real estate industry, and protects the public interest. We do this by funding real estate-related education initiatives, law reform, research, and industry and community innovation activities. We connect people and share knowledge in collaboration with real estate industry and public stakeholders.
As set out in the Alberta Real Estate Act Regulations, the Foundation’s volunteer Board of Governors is comprised of industry and public representation. The Governance Committee is composed of a minimum of three to four Members of the Board of Governors, one of whom is the Chair of the Committee. The Committee Chair may appoint up to three external members in order to support the Committee’s ability to deliver on its mandate.
The Foundation is seeking a candidate to fill the volunteer position of External Committee Member on the Governance Committee. Preference will be given to a candidate who brings the following:
- Governance and Board experience with a non-profit, corporate, or other organization.
- Understanding of the Alberta real estate industry (residential, commercial, property and condo management, property finance/mortgage).
- Awareness of good grantmaking and community investment practices.
The Foundation’s Governors and External Committee Members are responsible for overseeing and delivering the Foundation’s mandate through a Strategic Plan and oversight of the organization.
The deadline to apply is July 15, 2022. Interested individuals are asked to submit a one-page cover letter and resume outlining their experience and interest.
Please indicate External Governance Committee Member in the subject line.
