An Update from the CCIM Spring Governance Meetings
Hello Members and greetings from Chicago!.... And Congratulations! Our chapter was awarded First Place in the Presidents Cup, which is awarded by the CCIM Institute to the most outstanding CCIM Chapter for 2016. This is an award that has taken several years to attain and a lot of hard work from our Board and Members! I’m happy to announce we have finally reached the pinnacle and we plan on staying there.
This week has been a lot of fun and very informative. Ben and I are very pleased with the efforts and updates the Institute is rolling out to the members. Namely the marketing efforts and Site to Do Business (STDB) are at the top of the list. We were both very impressed with updated marketing and rebranding that is being implemented. Some of you may have received the course catalog for this year which highlights what we can expect from CCIM moving forward. No more disconnected multiple format marketing logos. I’m sure I’m not the only one who thought the marketing over the past several years has been simply adequate at best, and second rate to the marketing from some of our competitive organizations.
Site to Do Business is also in a much better position and more useful and user friendly than what we experienced over the last several years. If you recall in February of 2015, our chapter was the first to learn about the new STDB software and site. Although Tapestry Reports were very informative and entertaining, the process of creating them seemed laborious and not easy to develop. This among other features in STDB have been upgraded and streamlined. Be on the lookout for a CE class in the future where our members can get all the updates on STDB.
Chapter Events Committee and Regional Events Committee as well as Members Services Committee meetings have all been very informative. Ben and I will share what we learned with the Board and members when we return.
Until then we are off to celebrate our First Place Award!
All the Best!
