Chapter Leadership & Legislative Retreat 2013

Chapter Leadership & Legislative Retreat

Date: Monday, February 11, 2013 - Thursday, February 14, 2013

Where: Capital Hilton, Washington, D.C.

Golden ideas are around every corner…. your assignment is to identify and execute them at your chapter. Your chapter’s growth and success depends on it!

Join your fellow leaders from NAIOP’s United States and Canadian chapters for three days dedicated to professional development, education and sharing lessons learned in managing the many diverse aspects involved in successful chapter leadership.

You’ll gather enlightening industry, organizational and leadership perspectives by participating in one of the breakout sessions offering programs tailored to your specific chapter leadership role. You’ll also share ideas and innovative, educational programming with other NAIOP chapter leaders and key speakers as you network during event receptions, luncheons and breakfasts.

Leave with a better understanding of the chapter network and how you can benefit from all of the experience and resources that NAIOP has to offer your membership. Get an up-close look at our nation’s political process and see how NAIOP lobbies to advance commercial real estate’s interests and keep on top of the many state and federal issues that affect our industry.  Learn more about the political process directly from elected officials and NAIOP’s own government affairs staff, concluding with a visit to Capitol Hill and face-to-face meetings with your state’s elected officials.

Finally, join us as we recognize the extraordinary achievements of NAIOP chapters by honoring them with Chapter Merit Awards during a gala dinner and awards ceremony.

Special thanks and congratulations to John Gallegos and Lynne Anderson of NAIOP New Mexico for winning the 2013 Chapter Leadership & Legislative Retreat theme contest with the following entries:

  • Retreat Theme: Chapters with Golden Ideas
  • Chapter Merit Awards Theme: 007 Shoot for the Gold!

Capitol
Hill Day

Capitol Hill Day
Thursday, February 14, 2013

Thursday is reserved for meetings on Capitol Hill. We encourage every chapter to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with your respective Congressmen and Senators to voice NAIOP’s legislative concerns on critical issues. NAIOP will provide materials and education on the issues most pressing to our association and industry during CL&LR – but first you need to schedule your appointments!

Scheduling Your Meetings

First week of January:

  • Visit CapWiz to send a letter requesting an appointment. An example letter is provided for your use. 
  • Follow-up with a phone call to the representative's scheduler within one week. If the elected official is not available, ask to meet with the staff that is responsible for covering our priority issues.

Last week of January:

  • Confirm any outstanding appointments.
  • Notify NAIOP of your scheduled meetings.

Post-Meeting:

If you need assistance in scheduling your appointments, contact the Government Affairs Department at 703-904-7100.

Capitol Hill Club: A room has been reserved again this year at the Capitol Hill Club for attendees to congregate before, during and after meeting their representatives. A light buffet lunch and refreshments will be served. Luggage may not be taken to Capitol Hill and should be stored in NAIOP’s luggage storage at the Capitol Hilton.

Tips to Successfully Schedule Your Meeting on Capitol Hill

  • Have a constituent from the representative’s home district request an appointment.
  • List all constituents who will attend and the main issues you wish to cover.
  • If your elected official is unable to participate in the meeting, ask if they would be available for a photo opportunity afterwards.
