Welcome to the Florida CCIM Chapter Central District!

We are more than 250 members strong representing financiers, brokers, and other commercial real estate professionals who have received the pin, advancing toward earning the pin, or want to align with CCIMs who represent the best in commercial real estate business.

Our District’s 2020 goal is to ENGAGE AND SUPPORT THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS not only within Orange County, but all counties within our district.

In furtherance of that goal, we have committed to the following:

  1. Continuing our top-notch mentoring program to cultivate future CCIMs
  2. Including more candidates and recent designees on our board so that they can give back and build leadership skills
  3. Creating a vibrant Past Presidents’ Council to support our emerging leaders
  4. Facilitating opportunities for member involvement through the strengthening of our Chapter’s committees
  5. Increasing chapter engagement and bringing more relevant and topical events to our district not only within the immediate vicinity of Orlando, but in our surrounding counties
  6. Introducing a Fall 2020 Signature Volusia County Outlook Conference being held at the world-renown Daytona International Speedway (A big thanks to Past President Kent Cooper, CCIM and other east coast members for getting the ball rolling on this in 2019!)
  7. Holding our sell-out Mid-Year Update event again in May 2020
  8. Providing incredible value for our sponsors to increase District revenue to support these lofty goals

As your 2020 Chapter President, my talented team and I are here to serve YOU. Whether you are a member, sponsor, or looking to become part of District, do not hesitate to reach out.

I look forward to meeting you soon!
