Message from the President
January 1, 2023
Hello NC-CCIM Chapter Members,
Despite the adversity due to COVID-19, our Chapter has done a great job this past year growing our membership as well as increasing attendance at our chapter events.
The North Carolina Chapter has a shared mission with the global CCIM Institute; to elevate our members to the highest level of success in commercial real estate by offering the best Education, cutting-edge Technology and Networking opportunities, while promoting diversity and inclusion.
Our NC CCIM Statewide Market Forecast is scheduled for late February in Durham at the Sheraton Imperial with a networking event hosted by TCAR the evening before.
KC Conway, CCIM, MAI, CRE, the CCIM Institute Chief Economist will discuss the state of the economy. Michael Smith, Director of Economic Development for Chatham County will host an engaging discussion on the North Carolina Core and its impact on the surrounding counties.
Our NC CCIM State Conference is scheduled for September and will be held in Charlotte, NC this year. In addition to other statewide networking events, we also have an
annual golf tournament planned for April in Pinehurst, and a portion of the funds raised will benefit a charity.
Our chapter continues to host the CCIM core courses that are required to obtain the CCIM Designation. The institute plans to offer classes as a part of the new commercial
certificate program beginning in the 3rd quarter of 2023.
The institute is constantly improving the CRE Technology offered to us through STDB. We will continue to share technology updates and classes as useful tools for Chapter members.
We are extremely thankful for those companies and individuals that further our organization goals as Power Partners. It is their support along with our members, that allows us to continue to offer networking opportunities and chapter events as well as education programs for new designees and chapter members. If there are any members that have clients, vendors or business associates that would benefit from being a power partner, please reach out to one of our Board Members so we can speak with them about the benefits of being a NC CCIM Power Partner.
I am grateful to have the opportunity to lead our chapter in 2023 with the help of our executive committee, board members and volunteers and look forward to serving this outstanding organization.
Janice Dixon, CCIM
2023 NC-CCIM President
