Concurrent Session: Enabling Amazing Volunteers

Time: 11 a.m. - noon

Add To Calendar  

Volunteers are the lifeblood of any association – the visionaries with industry insight, the subject matter experts training the future, the unpaid work force giving back – but traditional models are no longer keeping pace with the evolving needs of our volunteers. Associations need to consider new approaches to targeted volunteer segments, and the types of commitments they seek. In this session, we will explore how our volunteer management programs need to adapt to fit the needs of today’s volunteers.

Concurrent Session: Energy Benchmarking Ordinances: Challenges at the Local Level

Time: 11 a.m. - noon

Add To Calendar  

Increasingly, state and local governments are considering adopting energy-efficiency benchmarking measures – legislation and ordinances that would require property owners to report the energy consumption of their industrial and commercial buildings. As a consequence of the most recent national elections, advocates for federal benchmarking legislation have decided to shift more of their political focus and resources to the local level, with a goal of enacting additional energy benchmarking ordinances throughout the nation. This session will discuss some of these measures, and the strategies and responses employed by local NAIOP chapters who have successfully dealt with these measures.

Moderator: 

  • Toby Burke, Senior Director of State and Local Affairs, NAIOP Corporate

Invited Speakers

General Michael Hayden

While head of the country's premier intelligence agencies, General Michael Hayden was on the front lines of global change, the war on terrorism and the growing cyber challenge.

At this year's political keynote luncheon, CL&LR attendees will hear from the retired four-star general, who served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Agency. General Hayden is known for his expertise on intelligence matters like cyber security, government surveillance, geopolitics, and more – and therefore uniquely positioned to discuss the hacking scandals that have wracked politics this year.

General Hayden will also discuss potential challenges and opportunities for the new Trump administration, his analysis of the tumultuous global environment, and what it all means for Americans and America's interests.

Before lunch we will honor a chapter with the Capitol Dome Award, a NAIOP honor bestowed for exemplary government affairs accomplishments.

Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill Day

Wednesday, February 8

We encourage every chapter to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with your respective representatives 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.

Use the following checklist to schedule a meeting with your Congressional representatives:

First week of January:

  • Have a constituent from the representative’s home district request an appointment with your Representative or Senator by contacting their scheduler. Typically, you will be asked to email a letter requesting 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. An example letter is provided for your use.
  • Follow-up with a phone call to the official’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 Reform
    • Infrastructure Investment
    • Capital and Credit Availability

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 Capital Hilton.
