The Central Alberta Regional Assessment Review Board (RARB) recruitment campaign typically runs annually each fall.
Members appointed to the RARB are expected to be available throughout the year with flexible schedule availability during the day to attend training and hearings.
At the start of the term, and every 3 years after, Board Members are required to complete mandatory training provided by the province of Alberta before they are permitted to sit on a hearing.
Mandatory training is three days and typically takes place in Edmonton, Calgary or Red Deer. Hearings may take place remotely (online) or in any one of the Partner Municipalities with a membership in the Central Alberta RARB (see www.reddeer.ca/rarb for more information).
Hearings typically occur Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and are scheduled in half or full day increments. However, hearings may also occur over several consecutive days. Last minute withdrawals are common, and the number of hearings or days of hearings assigned to a board member cannot be guaranteed.
