Message from Thomas J. Bisacquino, President and CEO, NAIOP Corporate
The COVID-19 situation has quickly upended our lives, as companies shift to operating remotely full-time and we adjust how we work and socialize. Of course, our industry and your business remain top of mind as uncertainty in the market abounds.
Rest assured that NAIOP is focused on providing you knowledge that you and your company need right now.
We've launched a website to make it easy to find our resources, with helpful links, and a place to share your thoughts and volunteer to share expertise with our members.
We're developing the Advantage Series: CRE Response to COVID-19 – webinars on the topics critical to CRE during the COVID-19 situation, presented by experts in the field. These exclusive webinars start next week. Watch your inbox for an invitation to register.
We're advocating for our members at the federal, state, local and provincial levels on issues of mortgage forbearance, suspension of credit rating downgrades, eviction moratoriums, bridge-loan funding and others as they arise, ensuring that policymakers understand the vital role our industry plays in economic stability. For our chapter leaders, we've created an up-to-date compilation of governmental actions in their markets. We have an important seat at the table as policymakers craft their responses.
We're working with our chapters, meeting with chapter leaders on weekly calls to discuss new strategies for operations and programming as part of our commitment to sustaining the level of service you expect from NAIOP.
We want to hear from you! Please share your thoughts on what would be most useful to you during this time. You can submit your feedback on our website and, if you are an expert in your field and would share your outlook, volunteer to present.
NAIOP is more than a trade association: We're a community all facing the same crisis today, but all dedicated to creating a bright future for our industry. We're here to support you during these extraordinary times, and I look forward to working together.
