Message from the President


What a busy first quarter it has been!  Our CI-104 class and networking events have been very well attended and we participated in our first of many planned student outreach events across the state.  

I recently returned from CCIM Midyear Meetings in Chicago where we pinned four new designees - Bart Crawford, Neil Nesmith, Bill Sanders and Reed Dolihite. I am also excited to report that for the 2nd year in a row your Alabama  CCIM  Chapter won the coveted President's Cup Award. Click here for the press release.  

The second quarter promises to be just as busy as we are gearing up for our Annual Beach Meeting next week. It's a great time to network, get 6 hours of CE and relax on the beach. Click here to register now . We are hosting a networking event in Huntsville on  April 23rd (RSVP to Yolanda Mclain), our annual Huntsville Market Symposium on  May 15th, a Montgomery networking event at the Biscuits game  May 21st and CI-101 June 9-12.

We hope you have noticed our efforts to improve communications - more frequent  newsletters, a new Twitter account and  Facebook page. We are working on a new chapter website and hope to have it rolled out in the summer.

Stay tuned as we are finalizing dates for the new Site To Do Business (STDB) CE Class. portfolio workshop, and monthly networking events.  

Our sponsors are an integral part of our chapter, so please be sure to contact them for any of your needs. They are listed at the bottom of this newsletter.
