A Word From the CCIM Illinois Chapter President

Dear Fellow Members:

I 'm sure many of you are finally happy to see the dry glimpses of summer.  I recently read that this past spring was the cloudiest and wettest in history.  But the reality is that we are half way through the year.  And as a recap, I wanted to highlight a few important events that are past and are still to come.

Looking Back
We opened the year working with Chicago Real Estate Council (CREC) with our Economic Forecast Luncheon at Maggiano's.  In February, we had a great annual round table panel with the Chicago Association of Realtors (CAR) at Gibson's in Chicago.  Thank you to all who participated.  Next year we will be hosting at a larger venue!  March was the Taste of Chicago at Prudential Tower for CCIM Institute's spring meetings.

The annual fall CCIM meetings are held from October 26th to 30th in Austin this year. For the candidates planning to sit for the exam, the portfolio due date is August 3rd and the exam registration is September 7th.  Please make sure to reach out to a chapter representative to make the most of your travels.  Good luck to those sitting for the exam!

It has been an outstanding first half of 2015 with chapter events and an active real estate market in the Midwest.  I have enjoyed meeting and working with many of our sponsors and members, and I look forward to the rest of this year.
