Nominees should have made a significant contribution of personal time, but contributions of money, materials, or other resources will be considered by the judges as well.

Nominees will be judged on level of personal contribution, impact of personal contribution, broadness of impact, and the project’s suitability as a role model for other members.

Some portion of the nominee’s community work must have taken place between January and December 2020, but judges will also consider ongoing efforts outside that time frame that demonstrate a depth of commitment.

The award is intended to recognize individual contributions, not company-wide efforts. However, if an individual within your company can be singled out as instrumental to the success of a group effort, he or she is eligible. If the achievements of two people (such as a married couple or co-founders of an organization) absolutely cannot be separated, they can enter as a pair and their entry will be considered as one.

Application Form for GSBOR Honor Society

Eligibility Criteria

Nominees must be in good standing of the Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS®. 

The primary purpose of the Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS® Honor Society is to  recognize and reward high professional achievement of members who seek excellence through education and who  voluntarily contribute their time and skills to Board and Association leadership. The people who bring credit to the  real estate industry in our area deserve the special recognition of their peers. The GSBOR Honor Society is  designed to bring them that recognition.

The Honor Society program is designed for both new REALTORS® and REALTOR  ASSOCIATES®, and for those who have held membership for many years. Very little recognition is given for past  achievement, since the basic concept is to award active qualification points for professional education and for  REALTOR® activity that ultimately results in better service to clients and customers.

The qualification period is from January 1st to December 31st of the year immediately  preceding your application. Applications are only accepted in the month of January each year–no exceptions.  Honor Society membership is not a one-time qualification. Yearly qualification is required in order to encourage  continuing activity and involvement. A minimum of 100 points per year is needed in order to qualify or maintain  membership. After ten years of qualifying membership, you will be awarded a Lifetime Membership status. Your  ten years do NOT have to be consecutive. An application form is on the following page. It lists, in detail, the point  breakdown by category. The Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS® may, at its discretion, require complete  documentation of a member’s participation by requesting letters from your DR or Managing Broker, or the  Board/Association leadership to verify qualification. Please complete the form, total your points, and return it to  the Board office.
