A Message from the President

Welcome to the Carolinas Chapter of CoreNet Global. The mission of the Chapter is to connect professionals, end users, and service providers in order to advance knowledge, promote personal excellence, and add value to each individual and their respective enterprises. Our Chapter accomplishes our mission through facilitating and sponsoring a variety of diversified programs that provide our members and sponsors with educational and networking opportunities. 

For 2018, we saw the Chapter continue to grow to nearly 350 members; we held our third annual CORE Awards event recognizing the top real estate professionals and projects in the Carolinas; our Mega Event beat attendance in 2017, and our University of South Carolina student members made it to the Global finals in the academic challenge. While Charlotte and Raleigh end user participation continues to grow, we are expanding our reach into the Triad and Greenville SC.

As we look forward to 2019, we’re excited to carry forward our momentum and we’ll be focusing on the following objectives: 

Member and Sponsor Value and Engagement through our Chapter events. These events are held in Charlotte and Raleigh and provide members and sponsors the opportunity to connect as Corporate Real Estate (CRE) professionals. Events include:

  • Networking specific events
  • Young Leader and University events
  • Community Re-investment events
  • End User Forums in 4 different locations in NC and SC

Provide Industry Leading Programs addressing the latest CRE topics with industry experts as speakers and panelists. The Chapter holds quarterly programs and annually hosts three premier events:

  • New Golf Tournament format in Pinehurst (May 2019)
  • Mega Event (September 2019)
  • CORE Awards Recognition Dinner (November 2019)

Grow our End User Membership through the value provide by networking, informational programs, and sharing of best practices. We are planning four End User Forums that would take place in Charlotte, Raleigh, the Triad, and a location to be determined in South Carolina. These Forums will bring together end user leaders so they can share experiences and develop relationships that should benefit them personally and their companies. 

Professional Development through CoreNet Global sponsored classes supporting continuing education requirements and courses to achieve MCR and SLCR designations. 

We encourage all members to become actively involved by attending our events or contributing your expertise in some other capacity. In addition, we have many opportunities on Committees that can aid our Chapter and help each person grow. Should you have any comments or suggestions on how to further improve the Chapter, please contact Amanda Shumaker, Amanda Shumaker at carolinas@corenetglobal.org.

It is an honor to serve as President in 2019. I’m looking forward to working with a talented group of CRE professionals that make up our Board of Directors, building upon the tremendous success that our Chapter has achieved in 2018. 

Sincerely, 

Frank Wiseman
CoreNet Carolinas 2019 President
