Inside this Issue – Summer 2019

Welcome to the Summer 2019 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Lance Warner, S.E.C., 2019 President of the Society, provides a quick primer on the cold storage industry.

Jason Mittman, S.E.C., CCIM, encourages you to focus on the small wins—not the big victories, to be successful.  Chase Magnuson, CEO of the Planned Giving Alliance, explains why this may be a good time to take advantage of a billion-dollar giving opportunity. Darryl McCullough invites you to use my equity, and  Bob Steele, S.E.C., illustrates how we create from the inside out as he identifies who or what is the most important thing in an exchange.  Brandon Sanders, S.E.C., CCIM, 2019 President of the S.E.C. Education Foundation, gives us an update on the Foundation’s activities.

The Society News Briefs section includes information about our upcoming meetings in Wichita, Kansas, and San Francisco, California, as well as information about Applying Lessons from the World’s Toughest Races, a terrific course that will be presented by Jason Mittman, in Wichita, Kansas, in September.

The interesting life and career of David Cook, S.E.C, SIOR is featured In the Spotlight. In the History Files, William Broadbent provides us with the history of national real estate organizations.
