Nominate a Deserving Association Executive for the AEN Award of Excellence

The nomination period for the AEN Award of Excellence is now open!

Established in 1989, to honour the legacy of Frank Johns, the AEN Award of Excellence is presented to a deserving AEN member who exemplifies professionalism, commitment, and leadership within the community of REALTOR® associations.

As a former Executive Vice-President of the Calgary Real Estate Board, Johns was a mentor and leader among Executive Officers who shared his expertise and wisdom for the betterment of the industry throughout his long career.

All senior board or association staff are eligible for the award provided they meet the award criteria. While many recipients have been nominated near the end of their career, it’s not considered a retirement award.

If you know an AE who meets the criteria, be sure to nominate them by the deadline, February 1, 2023. Presentation of the award will be made during CREA’s Annual General Meeting in April 2023, and a $250 charitable donation will be awarded to the award recipient’s charity of choice.

Nominate an AE for the 2023 AEN Award of Excellence.
