A Whole New World
A message from the global president of CCIM Institute.
For many of us, commercial real estate is a face-to-face business. That's what we love about it. But in the current COVID-19 environment, it's easy to feel disconnected.
That’s why, now more than ever, it’s important to remember that you can access the CCIM global community online at any time.
To start, I encourage everyone to check out CCIM Institute's COVID-19 resources page for guidance and practical tools to help commercial real estate professionals weather this storm, including:
- Government resources and legislative updates, such as CARES Act provisions.
- Insights and best practices from CCIM Institute Chief Economist K.C. Conway.
- Guidance for rent relief requests and other commercial real estate tenant/landlord issues.
- Podcasts and videos on a variety of CRE-related topics.
CCIM Institute also provides CCIMs, institute candidates, and course participants with many ways to connect online with industry peers for business and knowledge sharing. If you haven’t already, join us on social media — Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook — and on CCIM Connect, a
members-only forum for peer-to-peer discussions.
If knowledge is power, then these essential online resources and the institute’s CIRE magazine and podcast series are essential learning tools to have in your arsenal. I hope you take full advantage of both.
Whether in person or online, CCIM Institute's global community is united by education and a drive to advance the commercial real estate profession. We're committed to supporting you in times of uncertainty, and we'll continue to provide the resources that
ultimately enhance your career and grow your business.
