CCIM chapters honored for excellence at organization’s Midyear Business Meetings.
Washington, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — CCIM Institute recognized nine local CCIM chapters for excellence at its Midyear Business Meetings in Chicago, held April 3-6. The annual CCIM President’s Cup awards program took place on April 5, honoring CCIM chapters that have demonstrated the highest degree of skill, ingenuity, and innovation in promoting the membership benefits of the Institute at the local and regional levels.
CCIM chapters from Georgia, Central Texas, and Southern Nevada took home first place honors in the three membership tiers.
“2015 was the year the Georgia CCIM Chapter hit full stride by improving six areas compared to 2014 and thinking like a business,” says Georgia CCIM Chapter 2015 president Kirk Rich, CCIM. “For example, we established a consistent look to our electronic messages, created a speakers’ bureau of local experts for the media, and participated in a mentoring program in conjunction with the Atlanta Board of Realtors.”
The Central Texas CCIM Chapter was strongly engaged in promoting CCIM Thrive 2015 held in Austin, Texas, Oct. 27-28, and made its mark, including a stellar evening kickoff reception in Austin’s Brazos Hall sponsored by the Austin Chamber of Commerce. “Our primary focus was to build a strong group of CCIMs to make our CCIM chapter the best we could,” says Central Texas CCIM Chapter 2015 president Nick Nelson, CCIM. “One initiative was to create a Region 4 Passport to cross-market our classes regionally, which included offering rebates to students. If students passed the CCIM courses to earn the CCIM designation and comprehensive CCIM exam in one year, they received a $400 rebate from the Region 4 chapters.”
Its success resulted in a whopping 78 percent more students taking CCIM courses in 2015 compared to 2014 for the Central Texas CCIM Chapter.
“Receiving the President’s Cup Award is validation for all our hard work volunteers gave to our chapter during 2015,” says Southern Nevada CCIM Chapter 2015 president Robin Cevish, CCIM. “The economy in Las Vegas is stronger, we had a great board of directors, and we have energetic volunteers. Also early in the year, we looked at what we could do better compared to our 2014 submission to the President’s Cup when we received second place.”
