Network Now

To boost the quality and frequency of members’ networking opportunities, CCIM Institute has invested time and expertise by sponsoring ALM Real Estate Media’s RealShare Conference Series in 2014. These one-of-a–kind events draw many of the top industry deal makers and provide an unbeatable opportunity to expand your professional network.

In March, Michael Anderson, CCIM, shared his insights on the current multifamily investment scene as a panelist at RealShare Apartments East in Miami Beach, Fla., and Elizabeth Braman, CCIM, offered a look at key financing sources during RealShare Los Angeles. In April, 2013 CCIM President Wayne D’Amico, CCIM, Gary Ralston, CCIM, and Craig Tomlinson, CCIM, moderated panels at the RealShare Net Lease event in New York City. The Institute will also provide member experts for the RealShare Investment & Finance, Orange County, Net Lease West, Industrial, Healthcare, and Bay Area events in the second half of the year. All CCIM Institute members receive up to 20 percent off of their registration fees for these events with the code CCIM. To see the full schedule, register, or view post-event coverage, visit

CCIM’s participation in these events benefits every member by elevating the profile of the designation and showcasing members’ specialized expertise. I encourage you to use these opportunities to network with some of the industry’s most influential professionals.

Finally, I invite you to join the Institute Oct. 21–22 for our annual conference in Los Angeles, which will be programmed and promoted by ALM Real Estate Media/ You won’t want to miss the blockbuster lineup of speakers and events this fall.
