RECA is committed to cultivating future leaders in order to ensure that RECA will continue to be led by a diverse group of real estate professionals with extensive knowledge of Austin, the surrounding communities and the real estate issues facing these areas.


  • You should discuss your LDC application with your supervisor prior to submission to ensure your company's support of your candidacy.

  • You must be a RECA member for at least the 6 months before you apply.
