With 2011 closed out and the 2012 here to stay, new beginnings are aflight – this an exciting time for everyone. Looking back on the year that was 2011, there has been some tremendous progress, leadership, and hard work accomplished by so many individuals in the REIN™ community. These are the people taking all the necessary steps to propel themselves towards success, and to aid in the success of others.
At our recent REIN™ Kick-Off Conferences held throughout the month of January in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto, we recognized these shining stars at our annual REIN™ Awards. For their hard work and dedication, we would like to recognize each person and congratulate them on a prosperous and successful year.
