Jody Walker Belsick Becomes NAIOP Governor

Without governor support, so much would go undone.

NAIOP Southern Nevada would like to congratulate our board member, Jody Walker Belsick, on becoming a NAIOP Governor. This is a prestigious honor among the National NAIOP network. The NAIOP Research Foundation relies heavily on the support of the Governors to shape the industry insights and direct the work of the foundation to identify what the research priorities should be.

“NAIOP has been a pivotal organization for me in my career not only with keeping up with local and national development issues and trends but to make lifelong relationships.  I chose to become a Governor because I want to support the great things that NAIOP does for our industry.”

Individuals who demonstrate a dedication to the future of the commercial real estate industry and the work of the Research Foundation are invited to accept the lifetime distinction of becoming a governor. Governors support the Foundation’s program of work through their financial contributions, by giving of their time, and sharing their expertise.

Governors have the opportunity to help shape the Foundation’s research agenda by serving on committees and giving direction on the research projects undertaken. Most of all, governors take pride in knowing that their contributions are building the capacity of the Foundation to develop and disseminate best industry practices that advance the profession and make our communities better places to live and work.

Governors enjoy exclusive networking with fellow industry leaders, complimentary research reports and invitations to special events. Additionally, governors are often interviewed and featured in NAIOP publications, such as Development magazine and the biannual Foundation newsletter.

Donors who pledge a contribution of $25,000, or more, payable over 5 years, will become a governor of the Foundation – a lifelong distinction.
