CCIM Feature

Media Momentum

As one of the world’s most prestigious commercial real estate education and networking organizations, CCIM Institute continues to raise the profile of its members. From stories in local and regional media outlets to a commercial that aired on Fox Business News in up to 30 million households in 240 markets, CCIM is being recognized as the global standard for professional achievement in commercial real estate.

Promoting the CCIM designation and the value CCIMs bring to the marketplace is one of my top goals for 2013, and the Institute’s emphasis on this initiative has yielded a variety of opportunities. For instance, CCIM’s corporate video, which was released in May, provides an exceptional overview of the Institute. Take a few minutes to watch this video on CCIM’s YouTube channel.

In addition, New York mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis spoke at the June New York City Metro CCIM Chapter luncheon. This opportunity for CCIM members to network with a top business professional has value for the entire organization. At another high-profile industry event, the National Real Estate Investor High Net Worth Investor Conference, I was interviewed by NREI’s editor on how CCIM’s investment analysis insights offer a highly skilled approach to serving high net worth investors.

Through the first half of 2013, more than 125 million unique viewers have seen CCIM Institute or designees highlighted in print and online media pieces. This fall, a CCIM designation promotion campaign will be launched via print and Web advertisements in several key industry media sources, including NREI,, and Real Estate Forum.

CCIM strives to elevate your profile as a designee. Now, do your part: Update your profile information in Find a Professional and in November, renew your dues for 2014 to keep CCIM working on your behalf in the future.
