Kelly Burge, CEO of the Northwest Iowa Regional Board of Realtors has been awarded the prestigious Omega Tau Rho Medallion of Service, a national award bestowed for her contributions to the professional association and service to the Realtor profession. The award was presented September 23 during the Iowa Association of Realtors annual convention in Altoona.
The Omega Tau Rho Medallion of Service is awarded to members of the Realtor organization who meet specific leadership criteria on local, state, and national levels. Once a medallion is awarded, the recipient is a member of the prestigious Omega Tau Rho fraternity for life.
“This award is truly an honor as it marks Kelly’s exemplary dedication and service to the Realtor members of Sioux City and northwestern Iowa,” said Dave Bert, CEO of the Iowa Association of Realtors. “Kelly’s leadership and longstanding passion for excellence are well-recognized across our state and throughout the entire Realtor association,” he said.
Burge began her career in 1999 with the Greater Sioux City Board of Realtors and has served as the organization’s Executive Officer for the past 13 years. She successfully led the organization through a variety of changes during her tenure, including a recent merger with two adjacent Realtor boards to form the Northwest Iowa Regional Board of Realtors.
Omega Tau Rho was created in 1950 and is a National Association of Realtors honorary fraternity comprised of approximately 4000 members. The Omega Tau Rho Medallion of Honor elegantly captures the esteem in which inductees in this honorary fraternity are held by fellow REALTORS®. The medallion is two-inches in diameter and is made of solid brass with an antique gold ox finish in embossed hand relief.
