Message from the Chapter President
It is an honor to serve as your NAIOP San Francisco Bay Area Chapter 2017 President. Without question, NAIOP has been, and continues to be, the most influential real estate organization for my career development and growth. My goal as President is to make sure our entire membership benefits in the ways that I have from NAIOP.
The foundation of NAIOP is the networking opportunities that we provide, the core being the deal-centric environment we create for our members. Whether through events such as the Best of the Bay, highlighting the year’s best transactions, or the members-only Real Estate Insider lunches, providing topical market intel, our goal is to provide you, our members, with the opportunity to interact, to get to know each other and to discuss ideas about the market. Fostering long-term relationships through constant interaction, along with providing a platform for new introductions, is what drives our business and NAIOP SFBA forward. Just this past year alone, we hosted over 40 separate events, all geared towards deal making and networking.
Outside of the networking opportunities we create, a staple of the Chapter is our Legislative Advocacy. Consider NAIOP’s work on the legislative front as your behind-the-scenes legislative task force. Our Legislative Action Committee, through their alignment with the California Business Properties Association (CBPA), lobbies on your behalf to ensure that our real estate industry has an effective voice at the Capitol. Please stay informed by following our legislative updates via twitter at @naiopsfba.
We have worked tirelessly to create an industry-leading organization. Our members and sponsors are the backbone of NAIOP and we exist because of your support, participation and commitment to NAIOP. Please ping me directly with any ideas, comments or suggestions. I welcome and encourage your feedback. We are at a seminal time for NAIOP, and with your input, we will become an even stronger force in our local real estate community.
NAIOP SFBA has enriched my career by providing exceptional business development opportunities and educational experiences. I am honored to serve as President and excited about the chance to contribute in my new role.
