Note: NAIOP Wisconsin’s mission statement was revised in August 2012 as the result of a Strategic Planning Retreat held with Board Members, Past Presidents, Committee Chairs and Key Opinion Leaders.

NAIOP Corporate Mission Statement
NAIOP represents commercial real estate developers, owners and investors of office, industrial, retail and mixed-use properties. It provides strong advocacy, education and business opportunities, and connects its members through a powerful North American network
Who We Are
When key players in commercial real estate joined together nearly four decades ago to form NAIOP, they believed they could forge a path towards a better future by providing their colleagues with new avenues to:
- Network with your industry peers.
- Gain industry insight through educational programs with cutting-edge insight.
- Pursue new channels for career and professional development.
- Advance the business environment for commercial real estate through political activity.
- Conduct research to actively benefit developers and members of commercial real estate
Since 1967, NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, has become the leading organization for developers, owners and investors of office, industrial, retail and mixed-use real estate. NAIOP comprises 15,000+ members and provides strong advocacy, education and business opportunities through a powerful North American network.
NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, began in 1967 and has retained through all these years its core group of developer members. The association began as a small group of owners and developers of industrial parks in the eastern U.S. who formed the National Association of Industrial Parks (NAIP) to facilitate a forum for the open exchange of information on development. They also had a need for standardized covenants and restrictions, building requirements, and beneficial legislation and taxation. Nine individuals first met on September 12, 1967, in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.
Reflecting changes in membership, NAIP became NAIOP (National Association for Industrial and Office Parks) in 1976. In 2009 NAIOP dropped the words behind its acronym, which no longer reflected its current membership composition. Over the years, NAIOP has attracted members who are committed to excellence, entrepreneurial in spirit, and want to reach new heights in building excellence.
NAIOP is a leading commercial real estate industry provider of unparalleled networking opportunities, educational programs, research on trends and innovations and strong legislative representation.
NAIOP’s sister organization, the NAIOP Research Foundation, is one of the industry’s leading think tanks dedicated to conducting research assessing the trends, economic viability and needs of the built environment
