The leader in association 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.


In 2021, NAREIM pays tribute to a 30-year history of honest and open conversation between peers by introducing 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, via a shared white board discussion

  • Report back and share best practices with the peer group to be applied in the short, medium and longer-term.

In 2021, NAREIM will deliver to every professional, at each of our member firms the following opportunities to connect, collaborate and engage:

  • Annual Meetings – Acquisitions; Architecture & Engineering; Asset & Portfolio Management; Capital Raising & IR; Data Strategy; Executive Officer; Legal & Compliance; Sustainability and Talent Management – running from May to December 2021. 

  • Virtual Connections – The opportunity to connect with peers virtually for a 60-minute networking discussion and keynote conversation. Virtual Connections will be at the discretion of each functional group Planning Committee.

    • In 2021, NAREIM will create a Marketing & Communications (MarComm) functional group and Committee.
