Kent, WA, United States, 2014/05/09 - At the recent Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Midyear Business Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, the Washington State Chapter of CCIM was granted approval to incorporate the Inland Northwest Chapter into their chapter - CCIMWA.com.
“Incorporating the Inland Northwest Chapter into the Washington State Chapter of CCIM allows our chapter to provide services to another 150 members, in addition to our existing 150 CCIM members in Western Washington.” said Fred McConkey, CCIM-WA Chapter President. “We plan to provide access to chapter luncheons, speakers, classes and networking events via the Internet, and through our new website. This way, new members can easily participate in chapter activities without making the drive to Seattle.”
As an introductory offer, individuals from the Inland Northwest Chapter are able to join the Washington State Chapter for a reduced amount of $60 for the remainder of 2014. “This is a great value, given all the discounts a chapter membership provides”, said Fred McConkey. “We are pleased to welcome the new members!”

Of the estimated 150,000 commercial real estate practitioners in North America, more than 8,400 currently hold the CCIM designation.
