    Preposition

    John Doe
    Arbitrator of the Swiss Real Estate Association

    Would it be correct to replace "of" with "at"?

    Thanks.

    I do not know if this is quite, but here are my initial impressions.

    Arbitrator of the Swiss Real Estate Association - This sounds like he is the only person with this title.

    Arbitrator at the Swiss Real Estate Association - This sounds like he is one of several arbitrators.

    Another way could be:

    John Doe
    Swiss Real Estate Association Arbitrator
