President’s Report – July 2019

Dear Fellow Members:

As we officially enter the “hot” season, Southern Nevada is heating up in more ways than one. Reports show that office, industrial and mixed-use real estate is strong and growing with our members as the driving force behind major commercial real estate development across the valley.

Both the May and June breakfast meetings drew large attendance, focusing on the economic climate and commercial real estate activity in Las Vegas. Industry experts shared their insights and all foresee prosperous growth for the metro heading into 2020.

June also marked a major milestone for our chapter with the tenth anniversary of the Developing Leaders Institute. DLI graduates came together to commemorate this achievement and swap their “best class ever” stories. A huge thanks to our founding committee members, sponsors, teachers, alumni and Development Dudes and Dudette for fostering one of the top leadership programs year after year. (Reminder, applications for the 2020 DLI Class are due this Friday, July 12.)

We’re also proud to announce the Community Service Committee has completed phase 2 of the cottage renovations at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in Boulder City. Volunteers worked side-by-side with contractors to replace the four cottage roofs and renovate all interior spaces. This was a very special project and we thank the committee and all the volunteers and contractors who donated their time and resources to create healthier living spaces for guests at the ranch.

  • July 12: Members Only Education Workshop: Stacking the Capital Deck: Funding New Development
  • August 1: Annual Bowling Tournament at The Orleans
  • October: The social event of the year – Oktoberfest

Finally, I’d like to thank all our members, our Board of Directors and our sponsors for volunteering their time and financial support to our Chapter. Your contributions make NAIOP one of the leading organizations in Southern Nevada.

Have a great summer!
