Help Needed With Survey for Economic Impacts of CRE

 

Dear NAIOP Chapter Executives:

The NAIOP Research Foundation is currently conducting a brief survey of U.S. members on development costs for office, warehouse/distribution, manufacturing and retail projects. This updated information is needed to complete the 2022 U.S. edition of the Economic Impacts of Commercial Real Estate, and we would appreciate your help promoting the survey to members who are likely to know about development costs for manufacturing and retail properties, as only a few respondents have provided information for these property types.

The survey takes about 2-3 minutes to complete, and we are now offering anyone who provides information on development costs (including those who have already completed the survey) with a $10 Amazon gift card. Please encourage members to complete the survey, either using the personalized link they received on Monday, September 20, or using this open link: https://research.zarca.com/r/hh79EQ If someone else at their firm would be better able to complete the survey or is more familiar with manufacturing or retail projects, members can send them the open link. The survey will now close on October 6.

Letter from Leadership

The NAIOP Charlotte leadership is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak. The health and well-being of our members is our top priority, and we are taking the threat of this virus seriously. After continued monitoring of events and reviewing protocol of other similar organizations, we have decided the responsible course is to adopt social distancing protocol for all NAIOP Charlotte activities through mid-April. We are doing this not only to protect you, your colleagues and our community. We are looking at manners to deliver programs remotely and encouraging small groups to meet virtually. The specific steps we are taking:

  • Programs and Events — All public events during this time, and some larger events that are scheduled to occur later, are postponed or provided with remote access, where is practical. As updates are available, we will post it to our website at www.naiopclt.org.
  • Committee and Board Meetings — All internal NAIOP meetings during this time will take place over video/ conference. NAIOP will provide group conferencing capability. If you determine that a virtual platform is not appropriate for your meeting, we will reschedule.
  • Stay Connected — During this difficult time, we will explore other ways to continue to do what NAIOP does: allow members to connect and share insights. If you have any ideas for online platforms, webinars, etc. please feel free to share with us.
  • And finally — Events and activities the middle of April will proceed with planning efforts, as this is a fluid situation.

The NAIOP State Conference in Pinehurst is postponed. We are working to gather more details about the new dates, transferring room reservations, and registrations. When we have more information, we will notify you as soon as possible. Updates will be available at www.naiopnc.org.

During these times, our NAIOP staff may choose to work remotely as well. You may call our offices at 704-940-7383 and leave a message and our team will return calls within 2-4 business hours, or reach out via email at [email protected].

Thank you for your understanding as we all cope with this difficult situation. You are what makes NAIOP a great organization and we are so very grateful for your support. If you have any questions, please reach out to the NAIOP staff and leadership team directly.
