President's Message From Dubai    


April 30, 2018

Dear Members,

We are looking forward to welcoming all of you to Washington DC May 14 for the exciting day of programming and the Installation of the newly elected Board of Directors and our new President Barbara Schmerzler. We have an exciting day planned of FIABCI-USA information and learning followed by an International reception and seated dinner.

I am writing you from the FIABCI 69th World Congress in Dubai. I am very proud to be leading our FIABCI-USA  delegation of 135 members and guests.  The first there days here were for the Committees and the World Councils to work and design programs and plan for the future of our organization.  We have made so much progress this year. Tomorrow we will see the new FIABCI website unveiled after our Opening Ceremonies.

We are the guests of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and the Dubai Land Development Company. Our theme this year is “Happy Cities”. This is an exceptional venue with 1,500 in attendance and a program that has been organized to perfection.  After the opening of the General Assembly and elections, we  had dinner at the Atlantis Hotel, in an amazing Tent. Our Principal Member CRS delivered a program here. AREAA and CCIM sent their representation.

I look forward to sharing  more with you as the days go by.

Susan Merdinger Greenfield                                             
President of FIABCI-USA
