In June 1984, the Board of Directors passed a resolution calling for the annual recognition of a member for his or her contribution to and participation in education programs and activities. In July 1991, the Board voted to name this award the Arthur B. Pope Education Achievement Award, as a fitting memorial to this past AAR President who so strongly advocated REALTOR® education.
An established point system, which is annually reviewed by AAR’s Professionalism Trustees, is used to determine a member’s participation in and contribution to real estate education programs and activities. All activities for which points are awarded must occur during this qualification period.
AAR’s Professionalism Trustees will determine each year’s recipient of the award. The recipient of the Arthur B. Pope Education Achievement Award will be announced during the awards ceremony at the AAR Annual Meeting.
