What a year 2023 was! We saw a year of growth, for me personally and, for the CCIM Fort Lauderdale-Broward District. A few of our goals going into the 2023 calendar year were to increase our membership by 15%, increase our member engagement, improve our social media presence, and create a sponsorship package that provides great value to our fantastic sponsors. I may be a little biased, but I believe that we hit each of these goals! We increased our membership by over 35% from 2022 to 2023 and we continue to grow. We have new and engaged members of the district and we even had two new designees pinned in 2023 with more coming soon! Our amazing Social Media team, Monica Cataluna-Shand and Daphne Sullivan created a social media presence that has been garnering great feedback from the CCIM Florida leadership and has been gaining traction in the marketplace. Additionally, we were fortunate enough to bring on numerous new sponsors in 2023 that have been instrumental in supporting our district and allow us to curate fantastic events like the one we’re all attending today.

I am incredibly honored to have been asked to serve as the President for this great CCIM District and I am grateful to my Board of Directors for their hard work and support throughout this year. If you know me you know that I love a good quote, and one of my favorite quotes is, “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. This quote speaks to me as the leader of this great Board of Directors as I could not do this alone. Thank you!

I am honored to say that I will be retaining the seat of President for one more year, as our President Elect, Monica Cataluna-Shand, CCIM will take over the reins of this great district in 2025. But until that time, I say thank you to the CCIM Designees, Candidates, Members, and Sponsors of the CCIM Fort Lauderdale-Broward District. Thank you for your support. Thank you for your trust, and thank you for the opportunity to be challenged to learn and grow throughout this year. I will end with one more quote; one that I strive to live by each day. Hopefully this reflects in my leadership of this District.

“Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.” –Albert Einstein

Best Regards,

Nicholas L. Mau, CCIM
2023 & 2024 Fort Lauderdale-Broward District President
