The Cornerstone Award

Sponsored by

The 2016 CRDA Cornerstone Award recognizes innovation.

Award entry is open to any company, HOA, individual or vacation ownership project that has seized an opportunity, addressed a need, solved a problem or created a game changing value proposition.

This entity has either engaged the marketplace and achieved outstanding results and commercial success; and/or has left a lasting positive impact on the industry, the environment and society while being an inspiration to CRDA members.

The entry process is simple and we encourage all CRDA members, and CRC 2016 attending companies to enter.


Simply fill out the below nomination form with a narrative of up to 800 words that best describes why your nominee should win this award. After submission, you will be contacted and provided details of how to submit any accompanying collateral and payment instructions.

All nominees of this award will be featured on the conference website and acknowledged during the event in Toronto in front of an industry audience of key decision-makers.

There is an Entry Fee of $100 CAD, payable prior to acceptance of your nomination.

Three finalists will be chosen prior to CRC 2016 and receive valuable exposure from industry press releases, website acknowledgement and inclusion in a special 4-page Conference Review feature in Perspective Magazine, the industry’s leading independent trade publication globally.

Each of the finalists will also be given the opportunity to give a 5 minute verbal presentation to all delegates during the conference lunch before the winner of the 2016 award is announced and a trophy is presented.


Four judges which represent the Awards Committee will independently select their three top scoring nominees based on the narrative and collateral provided and their industry knowledge.

Each judge’s scores represent 20% of the overall score for a nominee, with the remaining 20% coming from an online voting process open to all industry professionals.
