2023 Annual Governance Meetings Lookback Quotes 

D’Etta Casto-DeLeon, CCIM 
2024 Global President 
The CCIM Institute

“My vision for 2024 is to create a cohesive team, empowered to excel in their roles. I wholeheartedly welcome your input, ideas, and collaboration because together, we can achieve greatness. Let us work hand in hand, supporting one another and advancing the mission of The CCIM Institute. I am committed to leading The CCIM Institute into a bright new future.”

Helen Chong, CCIM  

“Congratulations to all of the 190 newest CCIM Designees. I’ve watched some fail multiple times, and some pass the first try with ease. I’ve met someone who passed the exam at the age of 85! But no matter what, we all share the same sentiment that earning this coveted CCIM Pin is a monumental achievement!” 

Zane Peterson, CCIM  

“The CCIM Institute 2023 Annual Governance Meetings in Seattle did not disappoint. I had the opportunity to expand my commercial real estate network during the Seattle Space Needle Networking Reception and at the Chapter Networking Event at the Museum of Pop Culture. I listened to a great economic forecast, participated in a few governance meetings, then celebrated The CCIM Illinois Chapter's newest CCIM Designees with our friends from Region 7.”

It has been an incredible journey of learning, growth, and networking and I would like to thank all the faculty members of my local chapter, the CCIM Southern Nevada Chapter, for their invaluable guidance throughout this process.”
