Karan Barker honoured by Hamilton board


Hamilton‑Burlington & District Real Estate Board (HBDREB) executive officer Karan Barker was the surprise recipient of a special plaque, honouring her contributions to the board, during HBDREB's annual appreciation banquet. Geoff McCullough, executive director of the Winnipeg Real Estate Board, made the presentation of the plaque, which bore a photograph of Geoff’s father Howard, Karan's mentor.
HBDREB president Wil Wallace announced the establishment of the Karan Barker Scholarship Fund, in further recognition of Barker's leadership. Barker has been with the board for 25 years. She has been executive officer since 1988, and was responsible for setting up the board's Realty Shoppe and its revenue‑producing in‑house printing department. Barker won the Canadian Real Estate Association's prestigious W.  Frank Johns Award last year, presented each year to the executive officer who exemplifies dedication to the industry and leadership in association management.
