I n a time when negative news seems to dominate our airwaves and newsfeeds, we wanted to do our part to accentuate the positive. Upon that simple premise, our brand-new event was born: RISMedia's Power Broker Newsmaker Awards. RISMedia's Power Broker Newsmaker Awards will recognize and honor the industry's real newsmakers—the people who are positively affecting our industry and the millions of consumers we serve. Over the past three-plus decades, RISMedia has covered, chronicled and celebrated the professionals making news in real estate. We are privileged to now formalize these honors with the first-annual RISMedia Power Broker Newsmaker Awards Reception & Dinner, taking place on May 17th at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., during the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo. Our inaugural Power Broker Newsmakers Reception & Dinner will host more than 125 of the nation's leading brokers and real estate executives to honor the recipients of RISMedia's 2018 Newsmaker Awards, to be announced that evening. Seating is limited, so if you're interested in attending this invitation-only event, please contact our Director of Events Management, Cindi Gallucci, cgallucci@rismedia.com. In the meantime, we'll continue to highlight our industry's most notable Newsmakers throughout Real Estate magazine and online at rismedia.com and our Housecall blog. In this issue, for instance, be sure to check out the news CENTURY 21 is making as it prepares to leave "the sea of sameness" behind and reinvent the iconic brand for the future of real estate. Read all about it in this month's cover story starting on page 30. This month, we also pay tribute to a longtime industry Newsmaker: Pam O'Connor. As she plans to retire from her post as president of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, O'Connor shares some of her career highlights and leaves us with some parting words of wisdom (page 40). Her contributions to LeadingRE and the industry as a whole will not soon be forgotten. Join me in celebrating the positive and honoring the Newsmakers—both those in our industry at large and those making a difference in your own backyard. John E.
