Welcome to FIABCI-USA – Leading the Change!
By virtue of your membership in FIABCI, the International Real Estate Federation you are on the cutting edge of the global profession. As a long time member, it is a great honor and privilege to be the 2016-2017 FIABCI-USA President. Keeping our association relevant to all members including our principal and academic members in these times of incredible change is difficult. However with the new vision for the global federation initiated by Danielle Grossenbacher, 2015 FIABCI World President in conjunction with Kirkor Ajderhanyan 2016 FIABCI World President, FIABCI is entering an exciting new future.
We look forward to implementing many of these new initiatives including The City We Need is Affordable Campaign, the Global University Network and better and more regular communication with you. We will soon implement scheduled monthly communications at the Board, Local Council and Task Force levels.
We also recognize the need for succession planning for both the Board and our Local Business Councils and will be working diligently this year to see that we have future leaders in place to take us to the next level. Toward this end we held a FIABCI-USA Leadership Retreat in Aspen, CO, in September 2016 and are excited to welcome numerous new leader to our Local Business Councils.
Looking ahead we will once again host our Luncheon at the United Nations in New York in spring 2017 and the 68th FIABCI World Congress will be in Andorra in May 2017. I look forward to a wonderful year with a lot of new contacts and business for everyone.
FIABCI-USA President 2016-2017
