The backbone and strength of our chapter rests on our committees which are all volunteer based. We have 5 committees that cover all aspects of our chapter and our representative membership. Each committee is made up of a Chairperson (usually a member of the Board of Directors), a vice chair and a varying number of NAIOP members depending on the objectives and workload of that committee. Each committee, in conjunction with the Board of Directors, sets goals to attain for the year that work synergistically chapter objectives.
If you are interested in joining any of the committees listed below, please feel free to contact the committee chairperson(s) or chapter Executive Director, Chris Korjenek at (414) 507-2326.
