A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
It is a great honor for me to serve as the 2017 President of the Kentucky CCIM Chapter. Our mission is to be the preeminent avenue for professional development and networking for commercial real estate professionals. We have a full year of events planned toward fulfilling this mission. I along with the entire Board of Directors hope that will you participate and enjoy the events.
To our existing members, I want to thank you in advance for your continued involvement and support. For those of you that are not members, I would encourage you to join the Chapter. Becoming a member is only the first step. Attending events, both educational and networking, along with getting involved in the chapter is where the membership truly begins to pay huge dividends.
For those of you interested in pursuing the CCIM Designation, there is no time like the present to start investing in your career. The first step of this journey is CI-101 which we will offer in Louisville this October. Any of us that proudly wear the CCIM pin can share the impact the designation has had on our careers. Please take advantage of the scholarships that the chapter offers to help defray a portion of the cost to take CCIM courses. We presently offer two scholarships: the Frank F. Weisberg, CCIM Scholarship and the Larry K. Baumgardner, CCIM Scholarship. In 2018, we will be adding a third scholarship, the James E. Baker, CCIM Scholarship. Not only do these scholarships provide the Chapter the opportunity to honor these three individuals who have helped to shape our chapter, they also provide the opportunity for us to help designee candidates achieve their goal.
I want to thank our 2017 Chapter sponsors. Without your generous support, we would not be able to provide the quality programming our membership has grown accustomed to. These partnerships are a key ingredient to the Chapter’s success.
The Chapter is your chapter. Please get involved. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of Chapter leadership.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
W. Andrew Holden, CCIM
2017 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.”
“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 everyday and the designation signifies a level of knowledge and experience that creates immediate credibility.”
