2005 Charter Members

In creating this pinnacle award, it was noted that there are members of the Columbus REALTORS® who have made tremendous contributions to the organization over the years and who may not otherwise meet the new Lifetime Achievement Award criteria. In other words, these members were active at one time but may not be as involved now.

In consideration of those members, a task force was appointed by the Sales Advisory Committee to review a comprehensive list of potential award candidates. The list included all Columbus REALTORS® members who have received the 25 Million Dollar Award to date and a partial listing of their committee activity.

As a result, these 56 were selected as Charter Members of the Lifetime Achievement Award. The following members, although possibly not active in the Columbus REALTORS® currently, have all received the 25 Million Dollar Award and have been a Columbus REALTORS® member for 25 consecutive years.
