I wanted to reach out regarding CCIM Greater Los Angeles’s stand on the most recent unexpected turn out of events. It is with profound regret that due to Corona virus concerns, our Chapter must cancel upcoming events/courses until May 2020. While we did everything possible to avoid this decision, we must act in the best interest of our Members.

Our primary concern is the well being of our members. Last week, as shown by the news and media, the threat has immobilized and canceled various conferences and events here in California. On behalf of the board of directors of CCIM Greater Los Angeles Chapter, we have decided to take every precautionary measure to ensure that we can continue our professional responsibility, hence, we are postponing all the events that are scheduled within the next two months, until further notice.

The following Events/Courses has been rescheduled to a different date. 

  • CI 102: Market Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate- April 6-9, 2020
    (New Schedule: August 31, 2020 to Sept 3, 2020)
  • Foundations for Success in Commercial Real Estate Course- April 16-17, 2020
    (New Schedule: September 16-17, 2020)
  • CI 101 May 18, 19 (off 20th) 21, 22, 2020
    (New Schedule: September 28 & 29 (off 30) Oct 1 & 2)
  • Committee Meetings- (TBD)
  • Development Tour Downtown Los Angeles- April 28, 2020 (TBD)
  • Development and Technology: New World of CRE in Los Angeles- May 21, 2020 (TBD)


We will proactively communicate for an update and over the coming days and weeks, we will be making a series of related announcements that will provide more details.

We appreciate your continued understanding and support for our chapter!
