H. Ross Ford III, president and CEO of TCN Worldwide, is proud to announce a new collaboration with CCIM Institute to further empower commercial real estate professionals. The CCIM designation is commercial real estate's most coveted credential and represents commercial real estate’s gold standard for professional achievement. The organization, through its 50-plus chapters, continues to innovate best practices and elevate the commercial real estate professional through its core designation curriculum and robust continuing education program.
“TCN Worldwide prides itself on providing the tools to help our members succeed and continuing education is at the forefront of that effort. The CCIM designation represents excellence in commercial real estate, and we are proud to have a diverse group of CCIM designees in our organization, including our own Timothy S. Blair, CCIM, with Shannon Waltchack/TCN Worldwide in Birmingham, Ala., who is also CCIM Institute’s 2021 president,” says Ford. “We are excited to expand on our longstanding relationship with CCIM Institute to educate all members on the power of this prestigious designation.”
“Both TCN Worldwide and CCIM Institute recognize that lifelong education is the key to enduring success in commercial real estate,” says Gregory J. Fine, FASAE, CAE, EVP and CEO of CCIM Institute. “We’re thrilled to expand the institute’s educational offerings to TCN's membership.”
Through this relationship, both organizations will be represented at each other’s member conferences in 2020. In addition, CCIM Institute will present an educational session during the annual TCN Institute training program for developing agents.
