Tonya Bell Receives RCE Designation From National Association Of Realtors

Tuesday, September 14, 2021
Tonya Bell, MLS Director, of the Greater Chattanooga Realtors is being honored by the National Association of Realtors with the realtor association certified executive designation, which recognizes exceptional efforts made by the realtor association executives. 

Ms. Bell is one of more than 500 realtor association executives, and one of only 14 in Tennessee, who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state association executives who hold the RCE designation represent realtors in 49 states/territories. 

“This is truly an honor and I am very proud to be receiving this designation.
It is a high point in my career as an association executive,” Ms. Bell said. 

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. 

“I've had the pleasure of working with Tonya for many years, and this great achievement comes as no surprise. She is an integral part of Greater Chattanooga Realtors and I, along with the board of directors, are proud of her for this accomplishment,” said Robert Backer, 2021 president of Greater Chattanooga Realtors. 

“Tonya has shown herself to be an extremely valuable member of our team, and by earning her RCE, she has proven her dedication to our local, state and national associations, and more importantly her dedication to serving realtors with excellence,” said Carol Seal, CEO and executive vice president of Greater Chattanooga Realtors. 
 
Ms. Bell will receive an award plaque from representatives of the Greater Chattanooga Realtors during an upcoming event.
