The leader in REIM peer collaboration and engagement

NAREIM is a small association for a reason – so you can candidly talk and network with your peers in the industry.


NAREIM pays tribute to a 30-year history of honest and open conversation between peers with a meeting program format focused purely on helping you engage, and share best practice advice, with fellow peers in your professional role, at your level of seniority.

Our meeting format is centered around small breakout group collaborative sessions where members:

  • Review live case studies from fellow members

  • Evaluate solutions, live and together, in roundtable and small group conversations

  • Drive and create the content, digging deep into subjects few other associations cover, which impact your day-to-day work

Each year NAREIM delivers, to every professional at each of our member firms, the following opportunities to connect, collaborate and engage:

  • In-person and Virtual meetings: NAREIM provides in-person meetings as well as virtual connections for 10 functional groups across the real estate investment management business, including:


  • Architecture, Engineering & Development; Asset Management; Black Real Estate Roundtable; Capital Raising & IR; Data & Information Management; DEI; Executive Officer; Latinx RE Roundtable; Legal, Compliance & Risk; Portfolio Management; Sustainability; Talent Management

Executive Officer 2023 meeting attendee

"You will not find a more enthusiastic group of thinkers on the present and future of real estate. I had eye-opening conversations at each table and within each session of the conference, but also in transit between events, at happy hour, at dinner, and even in the line to the restroom. This group is relentless. You can't help but be infected by their passion for real estate. And there is just so much we learn from each other every year at the Executive Officer meeting." 

David Donato, President, Continental Realty 

""When passionate ESG leaders in real estate come together under one roof for even a handful of hours, it's amazing how much knowledge sharing and inspiration can transpire." 

Isela Rosela, Head of ESG, Bridge Investment Group on NAREIM's Sustainability 2023 meeting 

"I love the NAREIM format. It is small enough that you can engage with more people and not feel lost. You require us to move around and meet others, which is helpful. I love the sharing and candid discussion."
