Tim Hatlestad, CCIM Endowed Scholarship

David S. Miller, CCIM Endowed Scholarship

Letters will be sent on or before Dec. 1 notifying those selected. Once accepted, recipients can register for their selected course. CCIM will make every effort to enroll recipients in their first choice. If this is not available, staff will contact recipient for an alternate course. Recipients are responsible for making their own travel arrangements.

Scholarship recipients will be responsible for reimbursing the Chapter or Foundation for the full cost of a failed course; failing the course renders the scholarship null and void.

The course selected can only be taken in 2023. The scholarship cannot be applied retroactively to any course already taken; the award is not redeemable for cash; the Foundation will not reimburse individuals for any courses already taken.

To earn the prestigious CCIM designation, commercial real estate professionals must complete more than 160 hours of case-study driven education covering topics such as interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, investment analysis, and ethics in commercial investment real estate.

Candidates must also compile a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and pass a comprehensive examination.

The chapter has also announced that it is accepting registration for the 2022 Central AZ CCIM and Clear Direction Investments PAR-TEE on the Green and 18-hole Golf Scramble scheduled for Nov. 10 at Papago Golf Course, 5595 E. Karsten Way, Phoenix.

The event is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration fees are $1,000 for a foursome (Golf Scramble and PAR-TEE event); $275 for an individual (Golf Scramble and PAR-TEE event); and $125 for the PAR-TEE event only.
