NAIOP has committed to getting six editions out in 2022 – one every other month starting in January. The newsletter is very much a work in progress – as a member of NAIOP please reach out with any suggestions/ideas for future editions.  We are looking for people to continue expanding on our mission and help us accomplish our goals.  We want this to create value through increasing business and awareness of our members – as well as an opportunity to be of service while networking within our industry.
