Berlin, Md. – Sarah Rayne, Government & Public Affairs Director for the Coastal Association of REALTORS® (Coastal), is being honored by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) with the REALTOR® association Certified Executive (RCE) designation, which recognizes exceptional efforts by REALTOR® association executives (AEs).
Rayne is one of over 500 REALTOR® AEs who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state AEs who hold the RCE designation represent REALTORS® in 50 states/territories.
The RCE is the only professional designation designed specifically for REALTOR® AEs. It exemplifies goal-oriented AEs with drive, experience, and commitment to professional growth, according to NAR’s website. 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.
“We are incredibly proud of Sarah for earning this coveted designation,” said Coastal President Joe Wilson “She is truly a wonderful asset to our association and this accomplishment shows just how dedicated she is to serving our members.”
Rayne has been with Coastal for over five years. She holds a degree in Communications & Media Studies from Salisbury University and is a native to the Eastern Shore.
