In 2000, we established the "Hall of Leaders" award to honor Designees who have provided outstanding contributions and service in the real estate industry and profession.  The award is the highest honor a member can receive from the Institute.


The Board of Directors may identify and select one individual each calendar year as the recipient.


The Award is presented during the Annual Meetings in November at a special event hosted by the Institute.
