Issues and Advocacy

Take action with NAIOP’s on issues of concern to the commercial and industrial real estate industry, such as carried interest taxation, leasehold improvements and energy efficiency.

NAIOP Advocates on Behalf of its Members

NAIOP advocates for effective legislation on behalf of its members. As the recognized leader for commercial real estate, NAIOP furthers the industry’s public policy agenda by actively working with elected officials on legislative issues affecting its welfare. 

Through the efforts of our dedicated Government Affairs staff, and the strength of NAIOP’s Political Action Committee (NAIOP-PAC), we have successfully organized NAIOP’s representation on Capitol Hill and before federal regulatory agencies, making it a powerful voice for commercial real estate.
