Giving Back: Community Caring in Motion
As commercial real estate
professionals, we all have a vested interest in helping our clients lease
space, purchase buildings, and invest in the economic health of our
communities. Now it’s our turn to roll up our sleeves and give back to the
cities, communities, organizations, and people that have helped our businesses
grow and thrive. It’s my pleasure to invite all CCIMs to take part in
“Community Caring in Motion,” a new initiative CCIM Institute has planned to
encourage members to give back to their communities.
From Sept. 9 to Sept. 22,
CCIMs from around the globe, along with their colleagues, families, and
friends, will donate a day of their time to a cause that’s important to them in
their local markets. Whether members choose to participate in a
chapter-organized volunteer effort or spend a day individually helping out a
charity that’s dear to their hearts, collectively CCIMs can make a difference.
Paint a building, mentor a student, feed the hungry, or build a house — every
effort makes a huge difference. Document your efforts locally and we will
promote your accomplishments nationally.
Watch for more information to
come from the CCIM Institute as well as your local chapter about how you can
get involved in “Community Caring in Motion.” Mark your calendar now and plan
to donate one day of your time to the community that’s helped you succeed as a
commercial real estate professional.
