At its recent meeting in Pittsburgh, Pa., the international Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO) elected the administrator of the Texas Real Estate Commission, Wayne Thorburn, as its president for 2004-2005.

In addition to his responsibilities as administrator of TREC, Thorburn is also commissioner of the Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board. His position as president of ARELLO will require him to represent the organization at various conferences and meetings related to real estate licensing and regulation.

He is the first Texan to serve in this capacity in more than 30 years, according to a press statement. Thorburn had been president-elect of ARELLO for the past 12 months and will continue as president until the organization’s next annual conference in Toronto, Canada, in October 2005.

ARELLO brings together real estate commissioners and staff from 77 jurisdictions, including most American and Australian states and Canadian provinces, as well as regulatory agencies from Armenia, Bahamas, Bermuda, Guam, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Puerto Rico and South Africa. Associate members include organizations of real estate professionals in a number of other jurisdictions where licensing is not required currently.
