Going into 2023, many CRE professionals are anxious to see what the market is going to do. How will inflation affect your bottom-line? Is the Fed really committed to raising interest rates until they achieve 2% inflation? Will transactional velocity slow to a crawl? How can I continue to grow my business and pick up market share during a down market?
The answer is education, networking, and pursuing the business that you want. And that is why the KY CCIM Chapter exists – to help our members build the business they want through industry best education and networking. It is because of this that I encourage you to renew your membership with the Kentucky CCIM Chapter in 2023.
This past year, we held over 16 events attended by over 1,000 of our members and guests. We held CI- 101 at the Baird building downtown. For the 12th straight year, we held the KCREC Conference where CRE professionals as well as our friends in the law came together to spend a day networking and knocking out our continuing education – in a way that furthers our careers instead of merely checking a box.
Next year is going to be even better. We believe that there are opportunities in any market, and 2023 will be no different. Your membership dues support the mission and programming for the chapter as we provide the education and networking that can assist you in building a better business. We are hard at work building a schedule of events that will inform you, educate you, and motivate you. We will provide even more networking events for you to build new relationships and foster existing ones. Join us and let’s make 2023 our best year yet.

2023 Kentucky CCIM Chapter President
P.S. This year, for the first time, we are participating in unified billing with the CCIM Institute. You will have the opportunity to pay for your KY Chapter dues along with your national dues.
