Message from Eddie La Berge
2021 President, Oregon Chapter

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your 2021 President of the NAIOP Oregon Chapter. On behalf of the NAIOP Oregon Board of Directors, I would like to sincerely thank all of our 2020 Chapter Partners for your continued support of our organization. Your financial contributions, volunteerism and feedback have helped us continue strengthening the organization and allowed us to provide value to our membership through an otherwise difficult and unpredictable year.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, NAIOP routinely reached hundreds of attendees through our diverse slate of live, in-person events. Since coronavirus restrictions were mandated in March, we have successfully continued to engage
our members and the broader commercial real estate community through audio podcast interviews, Zoom video recordings and an innovative Virtual Bus Tour – each of these drawing similar attendance figures to those seen prior
to the pandemic. While no one can predict what the future will hold, we are hopeful that sometime in 2021 we will be able to return to in-person events. Until that is possible, we will continue to provide high-quality, virtual content and
engagement.

Chapter leadership is comprised of 21 Board members who represent the spectrum of real estate professions. Board members act as stewards of the Chapter and chair the numerous Committees. We welcome member participation at all levels; if you’d like to be more active in the Chapter, please consider joining a Committee.

On behalf of the NAIOP Board, I would like to thank all of our members for their support and look forward to a very successful 2021. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as your President. Please contact me with any comments or questions.
