“Canada was CCIM Institute’s first international market,” says 2010 CCIM Institute president

Richard Juge. “Sandy and Bruce were critical in venturing outside of the U.S. border and they continue to assist in instructing and being involved in both the chapter and membership side of CCIM Institute.”

“For more than 30 years, Sandy and Bruce have worked to extend our CCIM education and membership across Canada,” says 2017 CCIM Institute first vice president Barbara M. Crane. “They have also spent many years serving CCIM Institute as exemplary members of our Instructor cadre, Board of Directors and CCIM Foundation leadership.”
