The Foundation’s Governors Have a Vision

Governor Benefits

Individuals who demonstrate an advanced dedication to guiding the future of the commercial real estate industry by pledging significant financial support of the work of the Research Foundation are invited to accept the lifetime distinction of Governor. Governors support the Foundation's program of work through their contributions and by giving their time and sharing their expertise.

Governors have the opportunity to help shape the Foundation's research agenda by serving on committees and giving direction on the research projects undertaken.

Most of all, Governors take pride in knowing that their contributions are building the capacity of the Foundation to develop and disseminate best industry practices that advance the profession and make our communities better places to live and work.
