CCIM WISCONSIN CHAPTER NEWSLETTER
A Letter from the President
The holiday season is in full swing - a time for thanks and gratitude. This season, for many, celebrating the holidays looks different than it ever has before. For CCIM, our 2020 vision has been clouded by the COVID 19 pandemic. Our networking has become paralyzed, with our masks on and hand sanitizer ready while social distancing. My hope is that you have successfully pivoted and adapted to a new normal in your business practices.

This is a unique time to appreciate the relationships that have been developed through the Wisconsin CCIM Chapter. Our 2020 outcomes from this new normal include the ability to attend the CCIM conferences and adapting to virtual programming. We will collaborate with CARW for the upcoming events. There were two new designees pinned this fall; Heather Ewing of Abstract Commercial and Jennifer Huber of Colliers International. The 2020 Scholarship went to Bryant Meyers of Oakbrook Corporation. 

This fall, we pulled off our annual Golf outing and a CCIM 104 class, bringing 8 students one step closer to their CCIM designation! A BIG ‘Thank You’ to our Chapter Sponsors! The Wisconsin CCIM chapter is organizationally and financially sound and we are planning to continue building on this foundation of success.

The 2020 Board of Director slate remains the same for 2021 with the addition of Heather Ewing as a director. As the ‘pandemic’ year concludes and we round into 2021, your chapter officers, the board of directors, and I look forward to continuing to serve the chapter.

Happy Holidays,

Vicki Funseth, CCIM
2020 & 2021 Wisconsin CCIM Chapter, President
