Committees

NAREIM members work together to solve some of real estate investment management's most pressing business challenges. They do that through NAREIM Committees, developing discussions for meetings and pushing industry best practices through our benchmarking research.

 

This work is lead by two executive committees, three benchmarking committees and 11 functional group committees, the members for whom work hard each year on content and discussions, on the development and improvement of NAREIM benchmarking and on the success of NAREIM now and in the future. To get involved in any of NAREIM's Committees, reach out to Sanyu Kyeyune, NAREIM’s Head of Programming at skyeyune@nareim.org.


We thank everyone for all their hard work creating safe spaces so everyone can share what is working, and what is not, and driving improvements for all.
