One of the significant benefits of membership to NAIOP is to have a collective voice when addressing national, regional and local issues that impact economic development and/or the commercial real estate industry. Nationally we have an office in Washington D.C. staffed with lobbyists and professionals that regularly meet with our Senators and House members regarding such issues.
Locally the NAIOP Wisconsin has a Public Affairs Committee Co-chaired by Deborah Tomczyk of Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren and Dick Lincoln of The Mandel Group to follow issues. They are supported by a committee of members knowledgeable on particular issues. In February 2011 the Board of Directors also made the decision to retain a lobbyist, Tom Larson, to represent us in Madison.
