Apply Today for Developing Leaders 2016

Under 35? Aspiring members of the real estate industry looking to make connections, learn more about CRE and help grow NAIOP and the community are encouraged to apply for our Developing Leaders Committee! The Developing Leaders (“DLs”) of the Washington State chapter of NAIOP are students and real estate professionals 35 years old and under who are dedicated to the growth and sustainability of commercial real estate in Washington State. Through planned social, civic and educational events, the DLs share ideas, make connections, and create business opportunities.

The Committee supports the NAIOP mission by providing a relaxed, fun and social forum for engaging young real estate professionals. Committee members are encouraged to network, begin building relationships by interacting with each other as well as industry veterans, promote the NAIOP mission and four cornerstones of networking, influence, community and education (N.I.C.E.), and appreciate the benefits of a long-term career of NAIOP involvement.

Why join DL? Committee Co-Chair Davis Vaughn says:

Because of my time on the Developing Leaders Committee, I have a proven network of real estate professionals that I can count on. More than that, this is the only organization I have been on where the connections have grown past just business acquaintances and developed into true friendships. The committee is a perfect combination of talented, smart and ambitious individuals who leverage off of each other to help everyone succeed. Real estate is a relationship based business and the committee has been the perfect place for me to build some of my strongest relationships.

The Committee meets once a month to plan and organize its annual events as well as to discuss the real estate market and professional development. Each Committee member is expected to meet the following committee obligations:
  • Attend Committee meetings and events.
  • Act as either a Committee event coordinator or liaison to another NAIOP committee.
  • Be an ambassador for DL membership by promoting NAIOP membership, involvement and identifying prospective members.
  • Attend the annual NAIOP Community Enhancement Event.

In turn, DL Committee members benefit from developing solid peer relationships and access to exclusive Committee events.
