Talent Management Meeting
Oct 18, 5:30 PM CDT

You attend meetings to network. At NAREIM, we honor the investment of your time by ensuring our networking, activities and content is focused on helping you build personal relationships with peers, who are facing the same challenges and opportunities as you. 

The NAREIM Talent Management meeting is just the place to build genuine relationships and friendships.


Small group discussions and roundtable sessions is the key to our content. We provide networking opportunities through content - and not just through breaks and lunches. Our focus is on friendship and discovering the personality behind the corporate name. And of course, NAREIM is about candid conversations. You come to NAREIM to learn - and share. NAREIM is about the sharing of best practice ideas, solutions, challenges and opinions. It's a place to explore new ideas among peers and friends. That will be no different in 2022.

As we work to develop our roundtable and group discussion content, we are committed to ensuring your time is well-spent. We invite you to come join fellow talent and HR leaders.

Registration fee: $425
