Message from Jody Cienfuegos
2020 President, Oregon Chapter

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your 2020 President of the NAIOP Oregon Chapter. The state of our Chapter is the strongest that it has ever been, with over 300 members and record attendance at our 2019 events. This success and visibility in the commercial real estate community is allowing us to collaborate with stakeholders in a new and exciting way.  We have created a Sponsorship program that allows us more synergy and connectivity to the greater commercial real estate community.

Sponsorship will provide a solid foundation to advance local commercial real estate interests through advocacy, education, networking, and legislative representation, as we will face many regulatory obstacles as our industry continues to grow.  It will also allow us to produce more than 20 events, from breakfast programs, building tours, policy sessions, and many networking events from our Developing Leaders committee. We’ll interact regularly with elected officials, provide support to worthy candidates, and advocate for policies that protect and promote responsible development.

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 2020. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as your President. Please contact me with any comments or questions.
