SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) awarded the GOLD Global Achievement Program Award to the Global Investment Council of the Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® (SCCAOR) at its national meetings in Orlando, Florida. The award, which was won by SCCAOR's Global Investment Council during its first year of existence, is designed to recognize and reward the most active associations in global business.
Brad Gill, the committee chair of the Council, said that it was a great privilege to serve as chair for the global investment council during its inaugural year.
"To receive such recognition from NAR this early for our council reassures me that we have created something great for our general membership," said Gill. "All the member volunteers on our committee as well as our staff liaisons have worked diligently this year to ensure that we will have a strong global presence here at SCCAOR now and well into the future."
The Global Investment Council at SCCAOR coordinates with other internal committees and external organizations to make sure that its association is the recognized local resource for global real estate and multicultural clients.
NAR presents the GOLD Award to Councils that demonstrate "exceptional commitment to building members' awareness of the global and multicultural business opportunities in their local markets." Councils were evaluated in five focus areas: Business Plan, Marketing/Communication, Events/Education, Outreach and Benchmarking.
"SCCAOR is pleased to bring its members the resources, connections and training they need to be successful in the Global Real Estate Market," said Hilda Ramirez, Director of PR, Education, and Events at SCCAOR. "The evolution of the internet has made investing in global real estate one of the fastest growing sectors in the profession.
