President's Message from 69th World Congress in Dubai


April 2018

Dear Members, 

Dear Members,

We are looking forward to welcome you all to Washington DC May 14 for the exciting day of programing and the Installation of the newly elected Board of Directors and new President Barbara Schmerzler.

We have an exciting day of FIABCI-USA information and learning followed by an International reception and seated dinner. 

I am writing you from the FIABCI 69thWorld Congress in Dubai.  I am very proud to be leading our FIABCI-USA delegation of 135 members and guests.  The first three days here were for the Committees and the World Councils to work and design for the future programs and planning for the future of our organization.  We have made so much progress this year.  Tomorrow we will see the new FIABCI web site 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 this year.  1,500 in attendance and a program that has been organized to perfection. After the opening of the General Assembly and elections, we then had dinner at the Atlantis Hotel, in an amazing Tent.  

Our Principal Member CRS delivered a program here.  Principal members AREAA and CCIM also sent their representatives.

Looking forward to share more as the days go by. 

Warm regards, 


Susan Merdinger Greenfield                                             
President of FIABCI-USA
