Just as it’s awards season in Hollywood, now is also the time that awards are given out in our industry by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and REALTOR® Party, and we’re happy to say that Coastal Carolinas Association of REALTORS® (CCAR) just picked up a couple of big wins: The 2018 President’s Cup and Triple Crown.
In fact, if we may go on, we are the only large board in South Carolina that reached the awards’ goals of raising $98,280.37 and reaching 106.18% of the required goal for participation and donations. We take pride in these accomplishments we achieved together!
The President’s Cup is a recognition of the hard work state and local REALTOR® leaders and association staff perform throughout the year to improve the REALTOR® Party, an organization that offers programs, grants and other tools and resources to aid associations across the country in meeting the Core Standards’ Vote Act. Local President’s Cup goals and advocacy requirements to be achieved by December each year include: a 20 percent average response rate on NAR Calls for Action, meeting or exceeding the local chapter’s share of their state’s fundraising goal and 37 percent participation.
The Triple Crown Award is an honor that’s bestowed to local associations meeting NAR-specified criteria during each fundraising year (Jan. 1-Dec 31), which include meeting or exceeding the local chapter’s share of the state’s national REALTORSâ Political Action Committee (RPAC) fundraising goal and local participation requirements.
The President’s Cup, as well as the Triple Crown, will be awarded in May at the REALTORS® Legislative Meeting & Trade Expo, held in Washington, D.C. Check back for photos from this special event in May!
