Al Larson was a dedicated REALTOR® and administrator who spent 41 years in the real estate industry. He served as AREA's executive vice president from 1976 until his retirement in 1990.

Highly respected, Al's statesmanship and outstanding leadership benefited organized real estate across Canada. Al was an honorary life member of AREA, the Canadian Real Estate Association, and the Edmonton, Calgary and West Central Alberta real estate boards. He died suddenly at a CREA conference in October 1991.Take a look at past recipients.
