WATERLOO REGION, ON (December 16, 2022) — The Waterloo Region Association of REALTORS® (WRAR) is accepting applications for 2023 sponsorships. WRAR is a new association formed through the recent amalgamation between the Cambridge Association of REALTORS® and the Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS® . We have a new name, a fresh start, but the same awesome REALTOR® community—just better together!
While WRAR officially began offering member services on August 1, 2022, the two previous associations have over 150 years of combined experience. We are proud to support the needs of REALTORS® and brokerages serving one of Canada’s fastest-growing and thriving communities—Waterloo Region. WRAR is a member-focused not-for-profit association with over 2,500 REALTOR® members serving the Waterloo Region area. We host ongoing educational and networking opportunities year-round for our REALTOR® community to elevate their professionalism and expertise. WRAR also provides several ways for members to give back to the communities they serve through Association charity events & initiatives held throughout the year. 2022 saw a gradual return to a new normal for education, events, and connecting with the membership. WRAR has successfully adapted many of the programs offered to members in a hybrid format, allowing them the flexibility this industry so often requires. WRAR remains committed to adapting its services to bring exciting opportunities to members and sponsors year-round while providing a safe and accessible space for attendees.
WRAR is building a strong Waterloo Region community and is proud to have raised over $43,000 for Habitat for Humanity Waterloo Region at our first Annual WRAR Charity Golf Tournament in September 2022. Since amalgamating on August 1, WRAR has also recently participated in the Hockey Helps The Homeless Waterloo Region tournament, raising over $11,000 for local shelter-based charities. The association also introduced a Winter Boots & Coats Drive as part of Realtors Care® Week 2022, which will help those most in need in within Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge.
Looking ahead to 2023, WRAR is committed to providing our members with the highest quality support and services, and we are looking for the right partners to help make this happen. Last year, WRAR held over 140 events and seminars for nearly 4,000 attendees, showing how committed our members are to staying informed and connected. As a new association, we look forward to welcoming back our much-loved events while introducing new and refreshed ones. If you and your business would like to be part of WRAR’s exciting future, please take a moment to review this sponsorship package and see the many ways in which becoming a WRAR Annual Sponsor will connect you with our member community throughout the upcoming year!
