Commercial Investment Real Estate September/October 2013 - Page 4
As one of the world’s most prestigious commercial real estate educa-
tion and networking organizations, CCIM Institute continues to raise
the prof le 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 excep-
tional overview of the Institute. Take a few minutes to
watch this video on CCIM’s YouTube channel.
In addition, New York mayoral candidate John Catsi-
matidis spoke at the June New York City Metro CCIM
Chapter luncheon. T is opportunity for CCIM members
to network with a top business professional has value
for the entire organization. At another high-prof le 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
of er a highly skilled approach to serving high net worth investors.
T rough the f rst half of 2013, more than 125 million unique viewers
have seen CCIM Institute or designees highlighted in print and online
media pieces. T is fall, a CCIM designation promotion campaign will
be launched via print and Web advertisements in several key industry
media sources, including NREI, GlobeSt.com, and Real Estate Forum.
CCIM strives to elevate your prof le as a designee. Now, do your
part: Update your prof le information in Find a Professional and in
November, renew your dues for 2014 to keep CCIM working on your
behalf in the future.
