The NAIOP Developing Leaders have grown from 3 members in 2008 to over 100 in 2014. Developing Leaders are members who are age 35 or under. Programming, networking and advocacy offered by the chapter and our corporate office in Washington DC have allowed our future generation to form strong relationships with the premier commercial real estate development association in the country.
“In my opinion, NAIOP’s membership roster is made up of some of the top real estate professionals in the State. NAIOP’s Developing Leader program has provided me with an outstanding forum to connect with likeminded peers and seasoned professionals. The DL program is an extremely valuable resource to any up and coming real estate professional looking to establish long and lasting relationships.”
