   Chapter News
 
Hello my fellow NC Chapter members. It’s been a very busy six months for the chapter and I’d like to take a moment to celebrate some of our work over the year and announce several upcoming in person and virtual events and opportunities. Read Mike’s, full letter here.
 
Last week, 40+ members gathered virtually to celebrate our newly designated member, Cindy
M. Pickup, MAI, AI-GRS, who earned her MAI and
AI-GRS designations, vote to dissolve the International Relations Committee, and hear
committee updates about what the Chapter has done so far this year and what lies ahead for the summer and fall!
 
Members and nonmembers were busy in Q1 & Q2 taking a variety of residential and commercial courses before this cycle’s CE deadline which was the end of May. The Chapter held over 10 successful virtual education courses in addition to hosting a webinar lead by our annual sponsor, CompStak, who showcased their platform and gave an exclusive look at their brand-new analytics dashboard that highlights the latest CRE trends and deals in the market. Education for the Fall and Winter is coming soon. Watch the website and your email for announcements!
 
We’d like to welcome to our newest members to the Chapter! Welcome Kyle Leon Bynes; Andrew Cypcar; Candy Getz; C. Megan Gregory; Allen Peyson Hunt, III; Lori Mitchell; Alexis Nelson; Cindy M. Pickup, MAI, AI-GRS; Jessica P. Rouse; James Stotler; and Jackson Tate!
