Blood Drive for David DaCunha
As you may know by now, David daCunha, former President of CID, "Service to the Industry" Award winner, and dedicated CID member for over 16 years was involved in a serious motorcycle accident on March 19th, breaking both of his legs and sustaning multiple serious injuries.  He hit a pothole and was thrown into a parked car.

David has had five separate surgeries.  He was at University Hospital for 3 weeks and at United Medical Rehabilitation Hospital for almost a month.  David is now home where he is getting physical therapy three times a week.  He has been out of work for over two months now and the CID Board of Directors wants to do some things to help.

So, first we plan to host a Blood Drive.  But to schedule a date The Blood Center must have a minimum of 25 donors signed up.

Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would be willing to donate blood.  We will keep a list and, when we reach the minimum number required, schedule the date, time, and location, and notify you.

Want to Learn How to be a Commercial Tenant Rep?
Save the date:  Thursday, September 18th is "Rookie School".  CID is bringing in Gregory Schenk to teach his Relationship Approach to Business:  Tenant Representation A to Z.  Course is geared towards agents in the business two years or less.

Agents will learn the difference between a transaction approach to business and a relationship approach to business; how to develop those relationships; and the history of tenant representation - why it started, whether they should be in this niche or not, by itself or with the listing side of the business.  The agent will learn about lease clauses and why "mastering the market and process" is so important.

Agents learning this technique will be able to help their clients through the process of a lease renewal or relocation to lease, purchase or invest and will be better prepared to save the clients time and money!

So, save the date and stay tuned for more information ....
