Multiple Connections

President's Desk


In a world of increasingly virtual connections, CCIM Institute is committed to providing multiple venues for members to meet clients and colleagues face-to-face. CCIM Institute recognizes the value of facilitating personal interactions for its members at both a national and international level.

One of the best venues is CCIM Institute's prominent exhibit booth at ICSC RECon in Las Vegas, May 22-24, with plenty of tables for CCIM designees to meet with their clients and to showcase the CCIM brand. More than 37,000 attendees, 1,200 exhibitors, and participants from 58 countries are expected to attend the premier international conference for the retail industry. At the CCIM exhibit booth, CCIMs also can attend a cocktail reception to meet more participants and STDB demonstrations to learn new applications.

In March, CCIM leaders met with many global industry participants at MIPIM, March 14-17, in Cannes, France. With 24,000 participants from more than 100 countries, cultivating relationships allows CCIM leaders to facilitate global business opportunities for our members.

At the annual CCIM Institute Midyear Governance Meetings, April 1–5, in Chicago, 164 new CCIM designees were pinned, adding to recent CCIM designee pinning ceremonies that included 52 in China; 31 in South Korea; 35 in Taiwan; and 28 in Japan. In addition to committee meetings, instructor training, and networking events, CCIM held interactive sessions and a museum exhibit celebrating CCIM’s 50 years, highlighting the Institute’s groundbreaking training and technology through the years. 

Our strategic alliance with ALM — publishers of Real Estate Forum magazine and, as well as organizers of RealShare conferences — continued with a cover feature in Real Estate Forum’s 2017 January/February issue highlighting 50 years of CCIM Institute and what the future may bring.

Facilitating national and international networking opportunities while promoting the CCIM designation continues to take priority as CCIM Institute celebrates its 50th anniversary year. We hope members take advantage of these golden opportunities to enhance their businesses.
