Seeking Committee Volunteers

To be considered, the licensee must be in good standing, able to serve a one-year term
and capable of fulfilling the required duties of the particular committee.

We encourage licensees from across the province with different levels of experience to
apply. Each applicant will be assessed by the Board of Directors and chosen based on the
information provided at the time of their application.

Forms Focus Groups
We invite licensees who are not able to serve a one-year committee term to participate in
one of our forms focus groups. The next series of forms focus groups are set for late 2017
and will encompass all regions of the province. Further information regarding specific
dates and how to register will be released in early autumn.

Protocol for Real Estate Appraisals
The Nova Scotia Real Estate Appraisers Association (NSREAA) has contacted the
NSREC. They ask that we remind real estate licensees that to conduct real estate
appraisals, you must be a registered member of the NSREAA. Real estate licensees may
provide opinions of value to buyers, sellers and third parties in accordance with section
2(e) of the Real Estate Appraisers Act.
