This award applauds AOBA's Associate Members for their vision, volunteerism and diligent efforts in the local real estate industry. The nomination process begins in October, and the award is presented in January at AOBA's Annual Meeting.
Each year, the Associates Coalition Team (ACT) and the AOBA membership are invited to submit written nominations of an Associate Member who they believe has met the criteria of making the most significant contributions in the areas of leadership, vision and volunteerism. The nominees are then reviewed and voted upon by the ACT Committee, and an Outstanding Associate Member is selected to receive the award.
Over the years, individuals have been singled out for their significant contributions to the Annual Golf Tournament, the AOBA Scholars Program, assistance to the Duckworth School in Prince George's County, and other community outreach and education projects.
