Committees

The CCIM Central Texas Chapter is a volunteer based organization which means we are always in need of help from our members. 

Volunteering can benefit both you and your company:

  • Develop and practice important business and leadership skills to broaden your professional network

  • Gain visibility in your field

  • Gain access to new developments and cutting-edge information in your field

  • Develop new business linkages and form lasting friendships

With everyone's help each person will not be responsible for tremendous workloads... just a few hours a month with a few phone calls and email correspondence in between. We need your input to continue our path to success. 

Here is a list of the committees & descriptions of their activities:
