DLI Class #3 Overview

The Developing Leaders Institute (DLI) held its third class on December 11th: Market Analysis & Application which focused on how to analyze a market—its product, relative location, supply and demand—and how those factors affect the viability of a potential project or real estate transaction. John Restrepo, Principal of RCG Economics, started off the class by detailing the analysis process relative to the three basic scenarios that come into play: a site in search of a use, a use in search of a site, and looking at real estate as an investment opportunity.

While Mr. Restrepo helped the class to understand the macro-economic trends that can affect a particular market, Dan Doherty, Executive Vice President and Industrial Broker at Colliers International, focused on the micro-economic factors that brokers deal with on a daily basis.

Both Mr. Restrepo and Mr. Doherty are experts in their fields and used multiple real-life examples to illustrate the advantages of fully understanding your market.

Thomas & Mack Development Group sponsored December’s class and was represented by David Strickland.

Ronald McDonald House
NAIOP members assist once a year to drive to different Smiths grocery stores in the valley collecting food. After all of the pick-ups, the committee helps to stock their pantry.

Street Teens
A food & supplies drive is held at NAIOP breakfast meeting every year.  These directly help the teens living on the streets in Southern Nevada.

Kiwanis International – Plastic Bag Drive
In partnership with the Sustainability Committee in 2017, a drive for used grocery bags was held for Kiwanis International. They turned the bags into ‘plarn’ (plastic yarn) and transformed into crocheted sleeping mats then donated to homeless teens.

‘Knot Tied Down’ Clothing Drive for Communities in Schools
Over a few months at the breakfast meetings, the membership collects gently used business attire and ties for Communities In Schools. The donations provide underprivileged high school students with business attire for job interviews and work.

Candlelighters 5K

Vegas Youth Ambassadors
The committee and members assisted Vegas Youth Ambassadors along with Communities in Schools with their annual Thanksgiving Angel Basket Drive. They collected, donated and sorted food, decorated box baskets and delivered the donations to 30 families. Families received several meals including a complete turkey and Thanksgiving meal. This is such a great service opportunity for the committee & families. The kids love the basket decorating!

Holiday Toy Drive – CASA Foundation of Las Vegas
Every December, the Community Service Committee holds a toy drive at the Annual Holiday Lunch. In 2017, toys were collected for the CASA Foundation of Las Vegas who help foster children in Nevada. The committee helped to collect, deliver, sort & wrap the toys. Each year, CASA puts on an amazing winter wonderland holiday party for the kids and we were happy to be involved. We look forward to volunteering at this event next year.
