1. Network with more than 600 industry professionals. 2. Learn where the industry experts see their specialty going in 2017. 3. Gain an overall understanding of the economy and commercial real estate for 2017.


In prior years, speakers made 10 to 15 minute presentations, and questions and answers were done at the end of the program. This year, speakers will limit their slide presentation to two to three slides. The moderator, along with the audience, will be able to ask questions to the speaker at the time of the presentation.

The mission statement of the CCIM is to provide the best commercial and investment real estate education and services which afford members a unique competitive advantage in the marketplace, and recognition of the designation as the hallmark of competence, integrity, and professionalism in the industry.
