NAIOP Developing Leaders Program


Mission Statement:  We are a commercial real estate networking platform striving to enhance emerging careers through education, mentorship, community involvement and peer support.


The NAIOP San Diego Developing Leader Program now in its 8th year strives to improve upon itself by reviewing best practices, lessons learned and renovation. Based on a 5 point criteria for success...


1. Establish leadership


2. Develop Programs + Services (education/relationships)


3. Give Back


4. Outreach to Universities


5. Give Opportunity (sponsorships/access)


...the program began with answering the basic needs from the 35 and under sector. The continuing theme was evident: provide education and develop relationships. After learning this, the program was born with the Lunch & Learn series (education) and the Mentorship Program (relationships). Programs, services and series were added along the way, always asking our audience - How can we help you succeed? We have about 120 people currently enrolled in the 2013 Mentorship Program. We continue to see the strong and consistent development of our Toastmasters Program, Giving Back Program, Education Series, Mentorship Program, Sponsorship Program, University Outreach Program, |Mixers and NAIOPalooza.
