The Association Executive Network (AEN) Award of Excellence was established in 1989 to recognize outstanding dedication and exemplary service. The award was created in the name of Frank Johns, a former Executive Vice-President of the Calgary Real Estate Board. Johns was a mentor and leader among Executive Officers and freely shared his expertise and wisdom for the betterment of the industry throughout his long career.
The AEN Award of Excellence is only presented to a truly deserving AEN member who exemplifies professionalism, commitment and leadership within the community of REALTOR® associations.
All senior board or association staff are eligible for the award provided they meet the award criteria, which can be found here. While many recipients have been nominated near the end of their career, it’s not considered a retirement award.
If you’d like to nominate a deserving AEN member, be sure to complete the nomination before February 1, 2022. New for 2022: a $250 charitable donation will be awarded to the winning candidate’s charity of choice.
