A Message From Our 2019 Chapter President
I am deeply honored and humbled to serve as President of the Kentucky CCIM Chapter for the 2019 calendar year. As always, it is our goal to be the premier professional development and business networking organization for commercial real estate practitioners in the state of Kentucky. The Kentucky CCIM Board of Directors has been hard at work planning another full and exciting schedule of events, speaking engagements, and social opportunities this year – I’m excited for what the next twelve months will bring!
Our chapter, with over 260 members, boasts some of the best and brightest minds in our industry, including brokers, lenders, attorneys, accountants, and appraisers, to name a few. To our existing members, please accept my sincere thanks for your participation in helping make our chapter as strong as it’s ever been. To those of you who are not yet part of our organization, I invite you to become a member today!
I want to extend a special thanks to our 2019 Chapter sponsors, as well as those individuals and companies that sponsor our individual events throughout the year. The ability of our chapter to offer quality programming and events would be impossible without your continued, generous support. Thank you!
While I’m happy to report that our chapter is strong, it will only remain strong with your continued participation and support. Whether it’s taking your first CCIM class, assisting with a lunch and learn event, speaking at one of our conferences, or helping at our annual golf event, every bit counts. We want and need your help – so get involved!
As I step into this role as President, I want to be a resource for you. If I can ever be of any assistance or if you have any questions about CCIM, please give me a call – I’ll be happy to help!
Brent Dolen, CCIM
2019 Chapter President
WHAT’S THE VALUE OF A CCIM DESIGNATION?
“Having a CCIM designation separates you from all others in the commercial real estate industry and gives you professional credibility with others. Personally, it establishes methods for everyday business practices that make you a success or confirms you are using an intelligent business approach to the analysis of commercial real estate.”
“As an independent brokerage owner, the CCIM designation has connected me to a worldwide network of real estate professionals and the most successful real estate industry affiliates and professionals in the Louisville, Southern Indiana, and Kentucky markets. The CCIM designation provides the commercial real estate practitioner with the basic knowledge required to compete and succeed in the commercial real estate industry.”
“Obtaining the CCIM designation signifies an additional level of commitment and education within the commercial real estate industry. Further, the knowledge gained through the curriculum provides designees with the tools for success.”
“Becoming actively involved in the Kentucky CCIM Chapter has been one of the best decisions in my commercial real estate career. The CCIM designation, curriculum, and educational luncheons enable me to effectively advise my clients in a dynamic economic climate.”
“Being a CCIM is a definite advantage when pursuing and winning business! I use the CCIM tools every day and the designation signifies a level of knowledge and experience that creates immediate credibility.”
