Brought to you by the Emerging Leaders Shared Interest Group

Join us for the 2020 Emerging Leaders Winter Program: Steps to Success. This program combines the 2020 Mentorship Program kick off, and a panel discussion on the topic, 'Steps to Success', by distinguished commercial real estate professionals.

3-4 p.m. Mentorship Program Kick Off & Pairing

The Winter Program will start off with mentorship kick off and pairing of all those who are signed up for the 2020 Mentorship Program.

4-5:30 p.m. Networking with Refreshments

Networking is more than exchanging contact information at professional events. It often entails forging connections with peers and industry leaders with whom you may even establish friendships and lifelong professional relationships. Sometimes, your network may also be able to help you advance your professional goals, just as you may be able to support them in their career trajectory.

The Winter Program is a perfect opportunity to interact with leaders and accomplished professionals in the commercial real estate industry and grow your career.

Also enjoy refreshments while you make those key connections!

5:30-7 p.m. Panel Discussion (OPEN TO ALL!)

When you sign up for this program, you will hear from distinguished professionals in the commercial real estate industry, who will focus on steps to success in an informational session.

They will cover the following areas:

  • How did I get here and what do I do now?
  • Where do I go from here and how do I get ahead?
  • Why is professional development important?
