President’s Message – April 2021

In our last newsletter, I told you “we are embarking on a new adventure.” Well, our industry is now in the middle of it. From the proposed $5 per SF “linkage fee” on industrial development projects in Nevada, to the growing list of threats to global supply chain networks, our members are facing unprecedented challenges.

With your help, NAIOP is fighting the proposed linkage fee legislation, and we’ll continue to provide updates and alerts about that and other legislation we’re tracking.

Our next education event will  be relevant and timely. We’ll hear about “goods movement,” both locally and globally, including the implications of the recent Suez Canal blockage.

Another important part of this “new adventure” is understanding and meeting the needs of our Sponsors and Members. With some companies yet to return to the workplace and others returning at limited capacity, it is important for NAIOP Southern Nevada to begin its own reentry process by planning some in-person events. Understandably, some functions will continue to be held virtually. Hopefully, this will allow you all to engage in our programs and maximize the value of your NAIOP experience.
