Chapter Leadership & Legislative Retreat 2014

Chapter Leadership & Legislative Retreat

Date: Monday, February 10, 2014 - Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Where: Capital Hilton, Washington, D.C.

Sometimes, all it takes is just one person to get an idea rolling or create a movement. But to keep the momentum going, reach more people and truly affect change, we recognize there is strength in numbers. In all, 51 chapters carry out the NAIOP mission throughout North America. Collectively, we join as one, giving the association strength to speak in a unified voice for commercial real estate development.

Join us at CL&LR 2014 and you’ll:

  • Enhance leadership skills, strategies and ideas.
  • Absorb vital information on relevant topics like educational programming, advocacy tactics and event management
  • Gain the tools, knowledge and resources necessary to stand out as an effective leader and succeed in an evolving industry

A mixture of breakout sessions, speakers and subject matter experts will share insight and provide guidance that will inspire and energize you with strategic communication skills that can be directly applied in your chapter activities. An up-front view of the political process and interaction with elected officials and government affairs professionals will leave you with a better understanding of cause-oriented advocacy and a realistic approach to governing. Finally, share strengths and exchange ideas as we recognize extraordinary accomplishments of NAIOP chapters at the Chapter Merit Awards Gala Dinner and Dessert Reception.

Add To Calendar  

Larry Sabato What does it take to know election results before the race happens? How can you predict the winners – with 99 percent accuracy – of every congressional, senatorial, and gubernatorial race in the country, while also predicting the Electoral College count with the smallest possible margin of error? Only one man in the country knows the answers to those questions – Dr. Larry Sabato. He is the professor of politics at the University of Virginia and the founder and head of the U.Va. Center for Politics, where his ‘Crystal Ball’ electoral analysis expertly navigates the shifting sands of American electoral politics, accurately predicting the landslides, the nail-biters, and everything in between. Larry Sabato provides expert knowledge of what is coming down the pike, preparing us for the changing of the guard in Washington, D.C., and the nation. He bridges the gap between the rhetoric and the reality, showing audiences how the art of politics and the science of the American voting psyche come together to produce our nation’s next batch of leaders.

Capitol Hill Day

Capitol Hill Day
Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Wednesday 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:

  • Request an appointment with your Representative or Senator by contacting their scheduler. Typically, you will be asked to email 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:
    • Tax Policy
    • Terrorism Risk Insurance
    • Energy Efficiency
    • Transportation and Infrastructure

First week of February:

  • 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.
