Awards

Award Nominating Forms

Kentucky REALTORS® invites nominations of members (and local Associations through the CSA) for the 2019 awards. These awards have been created to recognize members, through their commitment to the industry, who consistently demonstrate the practices that define the very meaning of the term “REALTOR®”. Note: all award nominations must be submitted through the online forms for 2019. Please contact KYR if you have any questions or concerns.

Committee Volunteer Sign-Ups

Serving on an Association committee can do many things - it can allow you to be a part of the decision-making process, it can acquaint you with changes in the law and it can involve you in educational opportunities available. Being involved gives you input into the structure and future of the Association and gives you the privilege of working with other Association members you may not know.

If you would like to serve on a Kentucky REALTORS® Committee, please contact the KYR office.
