At this week’s Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, Ginger Downs received the 2017 William R. Magel Award, honoring her for excellence as an association executive. This accomplishment is especially prestigious because she was chosen for the award by a group of her peers.
Downs is the CEO of the Chicago Association of REALTORS®. She chaired the NAR Association Executives Committee in 2012 and is a Golden R investor in RPAC. I am proud to know Ginger personally, as we both serve on the REALTOR® University Board of Regents. Yesterday we graduated the fourth official REALTOR® University class, and I was honored to spend just a little time with Ginger. Congratulations on all your hard work over the years. Your commitment to excellence has not gone unnoticed.
