Gearing Up

What do you have to look forward to in 2012? More opportunities in smaller markets if current forecasts are any indication.

CCIM members possess the network, skills, and tools to emerge as sought-after industry leaders. With the strong foundation you've built as a CCIM member, it's critical to renew your membership for 2012 and continue to benefit from:

  • A network of CCIMs worldwide who are ready to make deals;
  • Webinars, educational workshops, and other resources that provide insight on today's critical industry issues; and
  • Technology that allows you to provide exceptional client service.

In 2012, CCIM will add even more value to your membership with these initiatives:

Education, Marketing, and Technology. Plan to attend an exclusive event at the Silverado Resort in Napa, Calif., Feb. 6–7. This "super session" will incorporate highlights of our updated core curriculum, a property marketing deal-making session, and a technology education event.

National Property Marketing Webinars. A series of national Webinars will provide an opportunity for members to showcase their listings.

Strategic Plans for Global Growth. As the Institute continues to expand internationally, CCIM's education and networking will foster more global opportunities for members.

CCIMs Pause for a Cause. This summer the Institute will ask all members to designate one day to give back to their local communities.

With the support of my strong executive leadership team that includes Nick Miner, CCIM, Lou Nimkoff, CCIM, Carmela Ma, CCIM, and Don Sebastian, CCIM, I look forward to a prosperous 2012 and encourage you to renew your CCIM membership and position yourself to succeed as the market recovers.
