Milton H. Shaw Distinguished Service Award
Established in 1984, the Milton H. Shaw Distinguished Service Award is presented annually to one REALTOR® member or staff executive who demonstrates outstanding leadership abilities and an ongoing commitment to the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS®  through active volunteerism on committees and participation at MAR events.   The award is named in honor of long-time association executive vice president Milton H. Shaw who served as EVP from 1967-1988.  

Recipients of the award have volunteered countless hours of personal time to support MAR and its mission through service on committees and work groups, attendance at MAR conferences and events, and involvement in public policy intiatives and REALTOR® community service activities.   The MHS Distinguished Service Award recipient is chosen each year by a selection committee consisting of the association's president, president-elect, incoming president-elect, secretary-treasurer, immediate past president (who shall serve as the chairman), the association's two past presidents who immediately preceded the chairman in office, the immediate past recipient of the award, Milton H. Shaw, and MAR's executive vice president (without vote).
