In May 2021, the Florida CCIM Chapter (FLCCIM) Executive Committee voted to form the FLCCIM Young Professionals Network (YPN). The FLCCIM YPN will cater to the preferences, activities and style of the mostly under 40 members of our commercial real estate industry and will be instrumental in further engaging this segment of the membership, especially given the large number of professionals working in the CRE industry and the wide age variation among them.
Using funding from the FLCCIM Chapter along with a grant awarded from the CCIM Institute specifically targeted to underwrite this new group, the FLCCIM YPN will hold several in-person networking events over the coming months in several areas of the state to garner interest from prospective FLCCIM Chapter Members in chapter involvement, engagement with the CCIM Institute for further education and to make friends and business deals together for the benefit of all involved. Travel expenses to State and National CCIM events are also being provided to help offset costs to select YPN Members.
Planned YPN events include networkers around the Florida CCIM Chapter’s 8 districts, several social/industry events focused on deal making and maximizing involvement of YPN’s in FLCCIM and its future leadership, along with other activities including social media and kick-off branding to get the FLCCIM YPN identity set up and indelibly stamped into the fabric of FLCCIM.
The leadership of FLCCIM YPN includes:
- Britney Mroczkowski, CCIM – Committee Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Larissa Dutra, MBA – Committee Co-Chair (email@example.com)
- Yulia Vargas, CCIM (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Carlos Bonilla (email@example.com)
- Artem Nashman, CCIM (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Rafael Mendez (email@example.com)
FLCCIM YPN members will be our go-to incubator to provide future leadership for the FLCCIM Chapter and to the Chapter’s districts around the state. Chapter leaders as well as the membership at large are enthusiastically pushing forward to elevate this group to new levels as FLCCIM continues to evolve.
For information on becoming a FLCCIM YPN member, interested parties can contact the FLCCIM YPN leadership. Qualifications are simply to be interested and/or involved in commercial real estate in Florida, and to be or to become a member of the Florida CCIM Chapter.
