2022 First-Ever Pitch Battle Results

The AEI Pitch Battle explores concepts of innovation, focusing on how associations can be nimbler and more receptive to risk, more responsive to member needs, and in step with the way a REALTOR® member does business. The program encourages association innovation and entrepreneurial mindsets among AEs and association professionals by providing a platform and financial incentive for the sharing of ideas and bringing new products to market – ones which improve the business of associations, particularly as they support their members’ businesses.

Please help us to congratulate the first-ever finalists for the Pitch Battle held at the 2022 AE Institute! Applications were narrowed to three (Florida REALTORS®, Missoula Organization of REALTORS® and the REALTORS® of Central Colorado) by AEC leaders. In Atlanta, a winner was chosen by an on-site panel of judges representing various business sectors and was awarded $10,000 to further their mission.
