Message from the President

Central Texas Chapter:

Wow! What a wonderful year it has been for CoreNet Global and for the Central Texas Chapter. As we approach the end of another year, it is always a great time to reflect back on where we started, how far we have come and where we are headed.

From a national perspective, CoreNet Global has continued strong growth with nearly 8,200 members (the highest ever) and a highly successful foundation of knowledge sharing, professional education and development and advancing the effectiveness of the Corporate Real Estate industry with world-class Summit events and designation opportunities.

At a more local level, three years ago, the Central Texas Chapter for CoreNet was a concept in the minds of a few real estate professionals in the Austin and San Antonio area with a desire to leverage the national platform of CoreNet into a local community for education, networking and support. A quick summary of our successful year:

  • A solid 56 members in 2013 with approximately one-half of our members being end users followed by a quality mix of service providers and economic development groups
  • 20 new members joining in 2013 – over 36% growth
  • 12 events including signature programs with Dr. Mark Dotzour, Dr. Ted Jones, Circuit of the Americas tour, Rackspace tour, and several local networking events attended by nearly 450 members and guests
  • Financial solvency to support program growth and scholarship opportunities

Further, we received tremendous support from our sponsors in underwriting and promoting our events. Please take a moment to acknowledge their association with our Chapter and I know you join me in thanking them for a great year!

Finally, we are excited about our opportunities in 2014. Your Board is busy planning another strong slate of programs, speakers and networking events and looking to continue our growth. We welcome your ideas, suggestions and participation. If you are interested in joining our Board or helping with program planning, membership or wanting to get involved, please let me know.

On behalf of your Board, thank you for a wonderful 2013 and we look forward to continued success in the year ahead.
