The Council has composed the following history for the purpose of chronicling its origins and growth, reflecting on its progress and landmarks, and giving recognition to the volunteers whose participation has brought us to the CCIM's 20th anniversary with a solid foundation and an ambitious future of continued service to the industry.
The hope is that this history will impart to its CCIM readers a sense of pride in their heritage and a deeper understanding of our mission.
As with any history, there are many who are not mentioned by name who nonetheless contributed greatly to CCIM Institute's growth and success. To those CCIM volunteers, elected and appointed, and to all who have participated during these years in the fulfillment of CCIM Institute's mission, is this history dedicated.
