Attention NAIOP Developing Leaders!
Legislative Issues in the Southwest:
Working With Policymakers to Make a Difference for CRE
Wednesday, April 7 | Webinar | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT


Understanding the pressing legislative issues in our markets is something that will help us be more effective in our careers and communities. On our call, four industry and legislative leaders will share their outlooks on the critical topics – tax, environment, economic development – and how they impact our businesses, and then we will break into small groups for networking. 

What are the big legislative issues facing businesses in your market? NAIOP Developing Leaders from NAIOP's Southwest chapters are invited to an exclusive program to hear from industry and legislative leaders on these pressing issues:

  • Increasing revenue sources through higher commercial real estate taxes. California defeated this issue in 2020, but as states face declining revenues, CRE could be targeted.
  • Barriers to economic growth and CRE development. Our industry contributed $1 trillion in 2020, and the impact on state economies is invaluable. 
  • Environment and sustainability. Hear strategies for working with local policymakers on green roof requirements, energy benchmarking mandates, net zero buildings, and more.
  • Business and community topics. From affordable housing to impact fees to supporting businesses as we emerge from the pandemic, how can NAIOP engage with government to support the industry and the communities in which we operate?

Engage in a discussion with both CRE practitioners and lobbyists who work with chapters in your market, then break into smaller groups for deeper discussions and networking.
