CoStar Group and Virtual Premise Sponsor CoreNet Global Junior Achievement Day in AtlantaSecond Annual Sponsorship of Local CoreNet Global Initiative Supports Atlanta Students (May 29, 2012)
ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/29/12 -- Virtual Premise, a leading provider of cloud-based real estate information management solutions, along with its parent company, CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSGP), announced their sponsorship of CoreNet Global Junior Achievement Day in Atlanta. Through a successful partnership between CoreNet Global and Junior Achievement of Georgia, the event was held at the Ronald McNair Learning Academy in Decatur, GA. This is the second consecutive year Virtual Premise has sponsored the event.
CoreNet Global recruited volunteers from the Atlanta Chapter membership who shared with students their unique professional and personal experiences that have contributed to their success in business and life. In addition to the sponsorship funding provided by CoStar, volunteers from Virtual Premise and CoStar staff based in Atlanta helped with classroom presentations.
"With the success of our first sponsorship of the Junior Achievement event in 2011, it was an easy decision to pitch in and support this worthwhile program again in 2012," said Jim Dooley, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Virtual Premise, who spearheaded the sponsorship coordination. "We are excited this year to have tripled the number of volunteers who graciously donated their time to interact with students. We focused on sharing our insights into some of the core values of CoStar and Virtual Premise -- dedication, integrity and team work."
CoStar has had a major presence in Atlanta since 1999 and currently has approximately 80 employees in its Atlanta offices. Virtual Premise, a CoStar company, is an annual gold sponsor of the Atlanta Chapter of CoreNet Global, the world's leading association for corporate real estate (CRE) and workplace professionals, service providers, and economic developers. In addition to Atlanta events, Virtual Premise participates in CoreNet's annual Global Summit in North America.
