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 the Education Trustees, is used to determine a member's participation in and contribution to real estate education programs and activities. Points will be accumulated from January through December each year. All activities for which points are awarded must occur during this qualification period. Qualification forms will be printed in tabloid and given to local boards for distribution. Qualification forms must be submitted to the member's local board on or before December 15. On or before December 31 each local board must submit to AAR the qualification form of their member with the most points. This member becomes the local board's Arthur B. Pope Education Achievement Award nominee. Only one nominee per local board will be accepted. The Education Trustees will name the local board nominee with the most points as the recipient. The recipient will be recognized during Winter Conference each year.
