CCIM Institute, one of the largest commercial real estate networks in the world with chapters in more than 30 global markets, announced its 2020 board of directors at their global conference in San Diego. CCIM Institute confers the Certified Commercial Investment Member designation, commercial real estate’s global standard for professional achievement.

Andie Edmonds, CCIM, Managing Partner at NAI Cascade, will serve her second year on the CCIM Institute Board of Directors. She earned her CCIM designation in 2011 and has served as Chapter President, Regional Vice President and currently serves on multiple national committees. Edmonds joins 85 other top commercial real estate professionals who comprise the voting members of CCIM Institute’s 2020 board of directors.

CCIM Institute created the language of global real estate investment. Our courses and worldwide community deploy commercial real estate investment methodologies and tools that speed the pathway between opportunity, a go/no-go decision and success for an asset, taught by instructors who are themselves industry leaders. Today, the organization, through its 50-plus chapters, continues to innovate best practices and elevate the commercial real estate professional through its core designation program to earn the CCIM pin — real estate’s most coveted credential — and its topical education courses offered through the Ward Center for Real Estate Studies.

In addition, membership in CCIM includes the industry’s best technology and operational platform, allowing entrepreneurial and mid-sized businesses to compete with the largest multinational providers. Today, almost 70 percent of designees hold the title of owner, partner, principal, or president, representing an exclusive worldwide referral network of 13,000 members in 30 countries. Ultimately, CCIM represents a larger vision of the commercial real estate provider, leveraging investment analysis, opinions of value, and underwriting to become a leader in sourcing capital, building a cash-flow vehicle, and ultimately creating value.
