CALGARY, March 7 /CNW/ - The Calgary Real Estate Board is holding its
first ever President's Gala, on Saturday, March 8, 2008, at the Telus
Convention Centre, Halls D and E, beginning at 5:00 p.m.
This event was created to honour those REALTOR(R) members, being inducted
for the first time, or as a repeat recipient, into the Million Dollar Club.
The name Million Dollar Club is not indicative of dollars earned, but
rather points gained from each real estate transaction. The Million Dollar
Club Award is a highly coveted achievement award that many CREB(R) members
strive for. The awards are governed by a highly efficient set of rules and
annual audit to ensure the integrity of the points.
The winner of the 2007 T.W.H. (Bill) Saunders, REALTOR(R) of the Year
Award, will also be presented at the President's Gala, as well as three
Honourary Life Membership awards.
"For many years, this event was only open to those members receiving an
award of merit or their million dollar club pin. For the first time ever, we
are opening up the event to the entire membership. This event should prove to
be one of our most elegant and premier events for years to come," remarked
CREB(R) President, Ed Jensen.
Any member of the media interested in covering this event will need to
produce appropriate credentials prior to gaining access.
