Nominate someone for the Better Communities Award

We are looking for members who are doing great things in the community for SPAAR's Better Communities Award. The award is given annually and its recipient is honored at the Winter Social. A financial contribution of $1,000 will be awarded to the recipient's charitable organization of choice.

Eligibility criteria: nominees must be REALTORS┬« or affiliate members in good standing with the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS┬«. Nominee should be a recognized leader in some community endeavor. His or her contributions to a program and/or an organization should result in improving the quality of life in our service area and serve to demonstrate he or she cares about the total well-being of the community. The award is designed to recognize individual contributions, not association or company-wide efforts; however, if an individual within a company is instrumental to the triumph of a group effort, he or she is eligible.
