The Fall 2016 Membership Development Effort is in Full Swing
Thirty-one applicants were invited to membership in The Counselors of Real Estate following the meeting of the CRE Invitation Committee Palo Alto last month.
The Membership Development Committee needs your help.
Counselors of Real Estate are eminent real estate practitioners recognized for their expertise, experience, and ethics in providing advice that influences real estate decision-making. If you know someone who should be a Counselor, please let us know. You can email the contact information for a prospective member directly to our staff in Chicago (firstname.lastname@example.org) or provide the information via the CRE website.
Key dates: The committee recommends that all applications for membership for consideration in the fall be received in the staff office by June 15, 2016, although applications for Fall consideration will continue to be accepted until the submission deadline—July 11, 2016.
New this year:
CRE has established an Invitation Resource Group (IRG) comprising CRE members familiar with the invitation process. This team stands ready to answer questions from and provide assistance to both applicants and their sponsors on any aspect of the process. If you wish to take advantage of this service, contact Shea Shumpert (email@example.com) the staff liaison to the IRG.

Submissions for 2016 James Felt Creative Counseling Award Sought
Have you recently completed a counseling project that required a particularly innovative approach? Which problems have you solved with creative or “out of the box” thinking? Have you conducted an engagement that made a positive impact on a community—local or global in scale —where you found an innovative solution that led to approval and completion?
You may nominate your own work or that of a fellow Counselor for the 2016 James Felt Creative Counseling Award. Please visit the CRE website for submission details and information about past recipients. The deadline for submissions is July 27, 2016.
Landauer/White Award Nominations
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 James D. Landauer/John R. White Award. The nomination process is open to all, and both CREs and non-CREs are eligible for nomination (except those CREs who currently hold national office or serve on the Award’s three-person selection committee: the current CRE Chair (Jim Lee, CRE) and our two most immediate past Chairs, Noah Shlaes, CRE, and Hugh Kelly, CRE). The nomination deadline is June 15, 2016.
Note: It is recommended that nominations be provided as soon as possible since the Committee will commence deliberations shortly.
The Landauer/White Award is presented annually to an individual who has furthered the ideals of The Counselors of Real Estate®—integrity, competence, community, trust and selflessness—and who has demonstrated outstanding professionalism in real estate. The award is not given based on involvement in The Counselor or NAR organizations. Rather, it is awarded to an individual who is considered a leader in real estate and has also contributed significantly to his/her community and/or the world around them (the recipient must satisfy both criteria).
The award was established in 1986 as a memorial to honor CRE James Landauer for his instrumental role in establishing The Counselors of Real Estate. Through his efforts, the prestige of the real estate counseling profession was greatly advanced. In 1997, the award was renamed the James D. Landauer/John R. White Award, to also honor another long-term chairman of the Landauer Company and former CRE President, John R. White.
Submit your nomination(s) to Mary Fleischmann at firstname.lastname@example.org along with why you believe your nominee(s) to be worthy of this honor.
