What are the benefits of becoming a member?

NAIOP Mass members benefit from NETWORKING with movers and shakers, LEARNING from industry leaders, INCREASING visibility for you and your company, SHAPING policies that impact the industry and EXPANDING business development opportunities. Members only events and an online member database keep our members connected to the key industry players locally. If you’re involved with any aspect of commercial real estate, you’ll benefit from access to industry leaders and decision makers through participation on NAIOP committees and NAIOP’s full calendar of educational and charitable activities that make networking, business development and community outreach effortless.

How is commercial real estate technology impacting your members?

To stay competitive, our members need to continually learn about new technologies and ways to work more effectively and efficiently. Constant advances in areas such as residential leasing, on-demand property services, marketing and social media and construction make our efforts to expose them to these ideas and provide access to learning all the more important.

What initiatives are you implementing to bring technology to your members?

Through partnerships such as this one with CREtech, we expose our members to opportunities to learn how tech is advancing our industry and how to take advantage of what is new and next for their own businesses.
