NAIOP | Maryland Chapter

Legislative // Developer’s Council

The Developer’s Council of NAIOP Maryland is comprised of member companies invested with the Chapter’s “Penny Per Square Foot Fund,” which finances the Chapter’s ongoing legislative activities. Participating within the Council are senior-level management executives that gather approximately four times annually to engage in timely and topical discussions affecting the Maryland commercial real estate industry. 

Past Developer’s Council dinner events have featured presentations from locally-elected officials including County Executives, appearances from State and County economic development executives, candidates running for key public offices and the NAIOP-MD lobbying and legislative team. Each dinner has a pre-selected theme or agenda item which becomes the focus point of discussion for the evening.

Key components of each Developer’s Council dinner are valuable networking opportunities and the exchange of ideas and opinions concerning key commercial real estate issues.
