The REIQ Board of Directors will soon call for nominations to fill two vacancies coming up in October.
This is an opportunity to step up and help shape the direction of the state’s peak association for the real estate profession.
Outgoing Director Rob Honeycombe will step down after almost a decade serving on the Board.
This year’s Board Director elections will be the first under the new Constitution, which was recently amended by a vote of the membership to reserve two positions for women and one for an under-35-year-old.
The call for nominations will open on 31 August and REIQ members will be notified by email. A link to the nomination form will be provided, and the nomination process can be done online.
Nominations will close 27 September.
REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella urged all members to consider a role at the highest level of the profession.
“We are looking for people who have something to contribute and want to take an active role in shaping the direction of the organisation and the Queensland real estate profession,” she said.
“The Board makes decisions about the advocacy work that the REIQ undertakes, what issues we’ll lobby government on and what ways we can help our members and the profession as a whole.
“Being part of the debate and representing the needs of our community is a great way to give back to the profession and is a very rewarding way to be involved,” Ms Mercorella said. “I strongly urge every eligible member to give serious consideration to nominating.”
Voting will be open from 4 to 24 October, and the successful candidates will be announced at the AGM on 26 October.
The opportunity to sit on the Board will allow two REIQ members to influence important decisions regarding the association for a period of three years.
