DISTRICT PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Commercial Real Estate is an essential engine of our economy. CCIM is one of the cornerstones for the commercial real estate practitioner. Together, CCIM provides the most comprehensive approach to education, networking, and political action.
Our Education Team has put together two core CCIM courses, two CCIM commercial introduction courses and two STDB courses for our members. Additionally, we will be hosting several online education opportunities. We will again host a Mentor/Mentee Program that garnered high awards for excellence in 2018. Several scholarships will be given to CCIM students seeking the CCIM designation. CCIM Central District is the place to further your commercial real estate career.
As always, we will be featuring several social events for networking and comradery for both our members and the general public. Our socials have been attended by many of the who’s who of the Central Florida commercial practitioner community. We will also be hosting three breakfasts, featuring high profile speakers along with our annual member breakfast in December. The 12th annual golf tournament will again focus our profits on the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.
For the CCIM Florida Central District, 2019 will be a very exciting year as we enter into the 10thyear of our recovery from the “Great Recession”. On our political action side, we will continue to influence our Florida Legislature from lowering our commercial lease sales taxes to examining ways to lower the recapture of depreciation expenses and capital gain taxes.
The 2019 CCIM Central District’s Board of Directors feature the dream team of leadership and commercial practitioner membership. This is the year to join the CCIM Central District.
I am humbled and honored by my fellow commercial practitioners to be your 2019 Central District President. I encourage many new members and our current members to become involved with the CCIM Central District. Get ready for a great year!
Kent Cooper, CCIM CVA
2019 CCIM Central District President
