Demonstrating CCMC’s commitment to maintaining an active role in our industry and community, CEO D. J. Cole joined the Urban Land Institute Arizona’s Community and Residential Council. This new local council, which hosted its first gathering last month, aims to provide opportunities to connect with peers, study cutting-edge issues in the local and regional housing market, and explore the challenges of Arizona’s housing and community development cycles.
At the kickoff meeting, Mark Boud, senior vice president and chief economist with Metrostudy, presented a national market update with added emphasis on Arizona. “I’m excited to be involved with this new council and initiative,” D. J. said. “This is an incredible opportunity to exchange ideas with other local influencers, as we connect and learn from each other in our local, regional and statewide industries.”
