NAIOP held our February luncheon on Wednesday, February 24, 2016 at the Embassy Suites in Winston Salem. The topic of convsersation was “Development Trends in Triad Area Downtowns”. Panelists were: Zack Matheny, Downtown Greensboro, Inc.; Randy Hemann, City of High Point; Jason Thiel, Downtown Winston Salem Partnership; and conversation was moderated by Bob Leak, Winston Salem Business Inc.
Over 100 CRE professionals came to hear the panelists discuss vision and place making (the importance of people’s patterns and how “place” drives activity) their vision for Triad downtowns, housing growth and retail development (when will we get a grocery store?), development issues (what do we need more of downtown?), historic tax credits, business improvement districts, job generation, and much more.
CLLR is an annual national conference hosted by NAIOP to bring together chapter leaders from across the country. This year’s conference was held February 8-10, 2016 in Washington, DC. Our leadership got to learn more about other NAIOP chapters across the country, interesting program topics, and meet with key members on capitol hill to discuss our white papers.
During the conference, the Piedmont Triad chapter won an award for outstanding sponsorship efforts.. The award would not be possible without the work and dedication of the board, the committee volunteers who make it happen, and the generous contributions from our industry partners who support our industry.
