Networking ROI

What is the value of your professional network? When asked this question, I imagine most CCIM members would respond in a word: priceless. As a member of the CCIM Institute, you have a number of valuable opportunities to help you grow and reap the benefits of a strong professional network.

  • CCIM Capitol Hill Visit, April 17–18, Washington, D.C. Collaborate with colleagues to lobby congressional leaders on the legislative issues that have an impact on commercial real estate, including carried interest, capital gains taxes, and commercial mortgage liquidity.

  • American Real Estate Society's Critical Issues Seminar, April 18, St. Pete Beach, Fla. CCIM Institute is co-sponsoring this event, which will bring together experts from around the globe to discuss strategies for successfully emerging from the Great Recession. Douglas A. Sawyer, CCIM, past president of the CCIM Education Foundation, will moderate an educational session.
  • International Council of Shopping Centers' RECon, May 20–23, Las Vegas. Connect with top retail professionals at this leading industry event and schedule a deal-making session in the CCIM booth at the 2012 Leasing Mall.

CCIM chapters also host a wide range of local and regional networking events, such as the Kansas City CCIM Chapter's networking event on April 23, during CCIM's 2012 Spring Business Meetings. Check out the Calendar of Events on to find events that will give you an opportunity to make the kind of connections that facilitate transactions. CCIM is here to help you invest in your network and build your business.
