President’s Cup

The President’s Cup recognizes the hard work state and local REALTOR® leaders and association staff perform to advance the REALTOR® Party. This high honor continues as REALTOR® leaders and state and local associations are urged to achieve especially important advocacy and RPAC goals. The President’s Cup is presented annually in May at the REALTORS® Legislative Meeting & Trade Expo to states who meet all advocacy and RPAC goals.

See the list of previous President’s Cup winners.
