Estevan’s Lynn Chipley has been elected to the Saskatchewan Realtors Association (SRA) board of directors.
Chipley, who is the owner-broker at Century 21 Border Real Estate Service, is one of 12 members on the provincial board.
The Association of Saskatchewan Realtors (ASR), Saskatoon Region Association of Realtors (SRAR) and Association of Regina Realtors (ARR) will amalgamate on Jan. 1, 2020, to form the SRA – a single provincial Realtors association.
The board of directors of this new association will be comprised of 12 association members – four from each of the designated regions of Saskatoon, Regina and Saskatchewan – those members whose brokerages reside outside of Saskatoon and Regina.
Five members of the initial board, including Chipley, were appointed for one-year terms by the SRA Transition Committee, a group established at the launch of amalgamation discussions in 2018 who have led the process from research to member vote and in the past nine months, the development of the SRA.
Elections were held by region via mail between Oct. 16 to Nov. 28 and results were announced at the member launch of the SRA on Dec. 4.
The SRA board of directors will take effect on Jan. 1, 2020, and will be installed at the SRA annual general meeting in March 2020.
“It’s an exciting time in Saskatchewan real estate, and I’m thrilled to have such an enthusiastic team of directors to work with,” said Jason Yochim, CEO of the SRA. “It’s a big undertaking for any association board, but with a new organization, we’re undergoing major changes in everything from governance policy to organizational structure and everything in between.
“But it’s also a great opportunity to enhance member services and make a difference in Saskatchewan real estate. I’m confident we have the right directors in place to achieve our goals.”
