Application Process for 2016 Member Recognition Awards
Each year, the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® (GBAR) publicly recognizes the active volunteer involvement, charitable acts, and business success of members through an annual awards program. In 2016, the association will honor REALTORS® and one Affiliate Member for their actions and accomplishments with the presentation of five distinguished awards – the Good Neighbor, REALTOR® of the Year, REALTOR® Spirit, Affiliate Member of the Year, and Andrew F. Hickey Distinguished Service Awards. Nominations for each award will be accepted until May 1, 2016.
The Good Neighbor Award honors real estate professionals for their community activism. The REALTOR® of the Year Award recognizes members for their volunteer efforts in the local community, business accomplishments, and service to the REALTOR® organization on the local, state and national levels during the preceding 18 months. The REALTOR® Spirit Award recognizes individuals who both motivate and support other industry practitioners through actions, words and cooperation. The Affiliate Member of the Year Award acknowledges the active involvement of an industry affiliate for their active participation in GBAR programs and activities, and their general support of the association, its mission and the REALTOR® membership. The Andrew F. Hickey Distinguished Service Award honors licensed real estate practitioners who have held membership in the Greater Boston Real Estate Board for a minimum of 15 years and are recognized as prominent leaders within the REALTOR® association, real estate industry, and their local community.
