The mission of the Florida CCIM Chapter is to provide the highest quality marketing and networking opportunities, services, and education that will enhance our members’ ability to conduct business successfully.
The Florida CCIM Chapter is comprised of 8 districts – North, Panhandle, Central, West Coast, East Coast, Southwest, Broward, and Miami-Dade/Monroe – serving the entire state of Florida.
Networking and creating relationships with fellow CCIMs has proven to be extremely valuable and financially rewarding for our members.
By Chere R. Roane, CCIM, CIPS, GRI, ABR, TRC — 2016 Florida CCIM Chapter President
Dear Florida Chapter Members,
If you know me, you know I demand value for my money. Yet sometimes, value is more than just a good “deal.” For me, there is great value in the relationships built through my chapter membership. When life recently surprised me with a good old-fashioned reality check, I knew I could turn to any of our approximately 900 chapter members for assistance. I knew that if I made a call, help would be on the way. What a great feeling, what value!
While the bond that CCIMs share and build over the years is phenomenal, each year your many state and district volunteer leaders strive to add additional, tangible value to your membership. Thanks to all these folks, I present to you my TOP FIVE value propositions for your 2016 Florida chapter membership – are you taking advantage of them?
Get World-Class Education right in your backyard. Thanks to the great work of our Education Committee, led by Ajay Babbar, hundreds of professionals have already taken core class this year, with tons more still to come. Check out After the Pin courses and more at www.flccim.com.
Save While Learning. More than 30 scholarship opportunities are offered each year across the chapter’s eight districts. Michael S. Reichenbach and his Scholarship Committee have simplified the application process so that you can apply via the FLCCIM website. Check with your district scholarship chair or connect with Michael today for more information and easy to earn savings.
Leverage The Power of the Pin. The chapter’s leadership is committed to promoting your designation — including upgrades in branding, web functionality, newsletters, member updates, social media, opening of Chapter Suites at state and national meetings & events and more. Use it all!
Partner and Save. Of course, we could not continue to provide these unique benefits without the support of your sponsors. Our chapter’s annual and event sponsors; our district annual and event sponsors and our national sponsors all support us because they want to work with the Best of the Best. Check them out — their expertise can help you save money and build your business.
Expand Your Reach. Are your clients worldwide? Your Chapter is crossing borders and establishing an international outreach to support your foreign interests. Maybe you are expanding outside your District. Reaching out to CCIMs in other districts is easy as well, as evidenced at the recent I-4 Corridor Update in Lakeland. Want more connections? Join us at our statewide meetings. Need help today? Members and Leadership from each of the eight districts are detailed in our chapter website.
Need something else? Just call, we are here for you!
