Renew Today

CCIM Members:

As your 2011 president, I look forward to next year with excitement and hope. There are definite signs that the recovery will begin in earnest, expanding into the secondary markets and smaller cities where many CCIMs do business.

How can you ensure your place in the market next year? By renewing your CCIM membership today. That red CCIM pin on your lapel tells the world you’ve achieved expertise backed by CCIM’s multimillion-dollar investment in results-driven curriculum and leading technology. But you can’t wear it unless you renew your membership.

How do I know that CCIMs will be the ones who succeed in the challenging new environment? It’s in the numbers. CCIMs on average earn 79 percent more than nonaffiliated professionals. More than 900 candidates earned the designation this year, a 59 percent increase over last year. And more than 1,300 new candidates have signed on to complete our education program.

It’s obvious that the marketplace respects the CCIM designation. And if you’ve survived the last two years in commercial real estate, you know the value of CCIM membership. To keep it working for you, renew your membership now at http://web.ccim.com/renew2011 or call (800) 621-7027.

On another note, it’s my pleasure to introduce Henry F. White Jr., the institute’s new executive vice president/CEO. Hank comes to CCIM after serving as the executive director/COO of the American Bar Association and the president of the Institute of International Container Lessors. He succeeds Susan J. Groeneveld, CCIM, who will resume her role as the executive director of the Education Foundation of the CCIM Institute.
