RENO, Nev. – The Nevada Association of REALTORS® (NVAR) and its "Face of Foreclosure" report were honored this week with a bronze award in the educational program category in Association TRENDS’ 2011 All-Media Contest. NVAR's report on foreclosure issues facing Nevada homeowners was one of more than 450 entries in the association publications contest.
NVAR President Mike Young called it "a significant honor for NVAR. It's especially rewarding to see a leading national source recognize what we believe has been a landmark report on the foreclosure issue facing our state, our homeowners, our economy and our quality of life. NVAR's staff, leadership and research partners put a lot of good work into this."
In fact, Young said NVAR is looking forward to preparing a similar report on foreclosures and related issues in 2012.
NVAR's most recent "Face of Foreclosure" report was released in early 2011. In addition to being referenced in dozens of news stories locally and nationally throughout the year, he said the report influenced state laws and helped to educate Nevada REALTORS® and other policy makers and industry leaders.
The TRENDS All-Media Contest is an annual competition held exclusively for professional associations, recognizing the most creative and effective communication vehicles developed in the industry over the prior year.
