President’s Greeting

Welcome! On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, we thank you for your interest and membership in the NAIOP NTX Chapter as we continue our commitment to providing advocacy, education and business opportunities to our members.

The NAIOP NTX Chapter is the leading organization for developers, owners and related professionals in office, industrial and mixed-use real estate. Our membership consists of more than 545 members at a corporate, individual and student level, and includes many of the most prominent and influential commercial real estate professionals in the country. In addition, our Chapter includes more than 215 Developing Leaders, which is our age 35 and younger program focused on supplementing and supporting the next generation of leadership in our area.

As an organization, NAIOP NTX remains focused on educational and professional networking opportunities for our constituents through monthly programs and special events. Moreover, the chapter is active in maintaining a strong voice in our state and local legislative affairs, focusing on those legislative issues which impact our industry. Our educational efforts continue to include initiatives that promote professional growth and leadership development, as well as scholarship opportunities for students looking to enter a career in commercial real estate.

In 2024, our Chapter Board of Directors and Executive Committee will remain focused on being the leading commercial real estate industry provider of networking opportunities, educational programs, philanthropy and legislative representation.

Networking & Programs – We will continue our history of high-quality programs covering a wide variety of industry related topics relevant to our region and members. We will also continue to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our members with recognition at our annual awards programs.

Legislative Advocacy – We will endeavor to maintain a strong presence and voice for our industry locally, in Austin, and in Washington, D.C.. The North Texas Board of NAIOP will also continue to strengthen our legislative alliances with other statewide and local real estate organizations to form coalitions on issues impacting the real estate industry.

Philanthropy – Our commitment to giving back to the community both financially and through community service is a major focus. In the last 5 years our Chapter and its members have provided  $200,000 in charitable giving to various organizations. Enriching the lives of those less fortunate will always be a goal of our organization.

Developing Leaders – The Developing Leaders program provides real estate professionals under the age of 35 the opportunity to network with their peers, gain insight to the issues impacting our real estate community, while also gaining access to the vast experience of the Board and the other senior leadership of our Chapter.

Our Board of Directors and Executive Committee is committed to serving our membership and their needs within this dynamic industry. We are thankful to be living in one of the most vibrant real estate markets in the country, and the NAIOP NTX Chapter is working hard to keep it that way! As always, we appreciate your feedback on our programs, and we look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.

All the best,
