ME MBE R SHI P With over 1,725 members, NAIOP Massachusetts membership is at an all-time high and remains the largest chapter in the nation. The Chapter has reached record numbers for individual, corporate, and Gavel memberships. NAIOP’s strength in recruiting and retaining members is due in large part to a very active and creative Membership and Marketing Committee, with support from the Board of Directors and staff.


NAIOP Members by Sector:

MEMBER ONLY EVENTS The Chapter held several member-only events this year, including:

- Break the Ice: NAIOP Member Mixer at Frost Ice Loft - New Member Connections: Benefits Over Breakfast - Two sold out Coffee with Colleagues held at Redgate and Paradigm Properties - Two Leadership Lunch + Learns that were hosted by Goodwin and Samuels & Associates - 2016 NAIOP Annual Meeting with NAIOP Board of Directors featuring James Eckenrode of Deloitte Center for Financial Services - Three Developing Leaders Executive Dinners (with Charley Leatherbee of Skanska USA Commercial Development, Dennis Clarke of Cummings Properties, as well as Leslie Cohen and Joel Sklar of Samuels & Associates), open only to Developing Leader members, where a small group shares a casual dinner with an industry leader

NAIOP RECRUITS CLUB The Chapter launched a member-get-a-member contest that encourages current members to recruit friends and colleagues to join NAIOP. By recruiting just one person to join, they become a member of the NAIOP Recruits Club and earn prizes for their recruitment efforts. The 2016 top recruiter was Wendy Pierce of Solomon McCown with a total of 10 recruits!

GOVE RNME NT AFFAI R S As the voice of the commercial real estate industry, NAIOP fights tirelessly to encourage economic growth and development in Massachusetts. If laws, policies or regulations affecting the industry are being considered, NAIOP is at the table, providing members with strong and effective representation. NAIOP works to ensure legislators and regulators understand the industry’s key issues and the government affairs team works to enact important changes. The year brought the conclusion of the 2015-2016 legislative session on Beacon Hill, the implementation of numerous regulatory reform initiatives, and a continued development boom. In 2016, NAIOP aggressively worked to shape a wide range of regulations, policies, and legislation affecting the industry. None of this work would have been possible without the support of NAIOP Gavel Members and NAIOP’s volunteer Government Affairs Committee members. The following are just some of this year’s government affairs activities: DID YOU KNOW?


NAIOP represents the interests of companies that • Removed Right of First Refusal language from Municipal Modernization legislation, which own or manage office, retail, would have given a municipality a right of first refusal if a property owned by a non-profit was sold or multifamily, industrial, developed (or if there was a change in use). The language would have chilled development laboratory, mixed-use, + opportunities at sites throughout the Commonwealth. institutional space in the • Supported two important zoning changes in the final omnibus economic development bill. The changes Commonwealth.

extended (from 6 months to 12 months) the period of time within which an applicant must begin construction following the issuance of a building permit or special permit before being subject to subsequent amendments to local ordinances. The bill also extended (from 2 years to 3 years) the life of a special permit if construction has not commenced.

• Educated lawmakers on the negative impacts of proposed zoning legislation on commercial and residential real estate development. Successfully blocked passage of legislation. • Succeeded in ensuring $45 million in funding for the depleted Brownfields Redevelopment Fund. • Increased the total number of projects allowed per community under the I-cubed program to 10 projects. • Opposed creation of Coastal A Flood Zones in draft 9th edition of building code that go beyond FEMA requirements. This will continue to be an issue in 2017. • Supported $500 million for MassWorks in economic development bill. • Led coalition to defeat wage theft legislation. The radical bill would have targeted and punished companies that had no way of knowing about any wage violations by subcontractors. • Continued to advocate for additional reforms at the MBTA through participation in the Coalition for a World Class Public Transit System. • Provided extensive input on MCP Guidance documents, which affect the cleanup of contaminated sites. Supported significant changes to the final documents.

At the Arts, Culture + Regulation on the Waterfront program.

At Governor Baker’s press conference regarding the Economic Development bill that was supported by NAIOP.

ADVA NCE + CHANG E • Represented CRE industry on DPU Interconnection Task Force, which was created to discuss the current processes used by utilities to provide new services to commercial projects. • Provided detailed input on building code changes including the draft 9th edition and changes to the 8th edition of the energy code. Defeated proposed solar rooftop readiness and electric vehicle readiness requirements in amended 8th edition. • Supported passage of Commercial PACE in Massachusetts, which creates a financing mechanism for energy efficiency improvements in commercial properties. • Blocked problematic climate change legislation which went well beyond planning and contained subjective and far reaching language that could have had extremely negative consequences on development. • Supported Climate Change Executive Order signed by Governor Baker in August. Met frequently with City of Boston on climate issues. • Supported changes to Chapter 91 Facilities of Public Accommodation regulations. The regulations, expected by end of year, will benefit development projects that have historically struggled with meeting the existing FPA requirements. • Created coalition to successfully defeat water banking legislation, an impact fee on new development. • Represented industry on a wide range of stormwater issues. • Met frequently with cabinet secretaries and commissioners to provide input on draft policies and to discuss issues of interest to the real estate industry with policymakers. • Provided detailed feedback on Draft Policy and Guidelines for Transit Oriented Development issued by MassDOT/MBTA. • Appointed to special Senate Committee on Housing and contributed to housing report issued in April. Future legislation is expected to follow next session. • Sought feedback from Gavel members on creative solutions to produce middle-income housing. Met with representatives from Baker Administration & City of Boston to discuss middle-income housing concepts and next steps.


• Supported the creation of a new starter home program as part of Chapter 40R to encourage the production of middle income housing. The program encourages the production of densely located, smaller, single family homes, with a requirement that at least 20% of the homes in the district be affordable to and occupied by households with incomes at or below 100% of AMI.

EDUCATION: INCREASING AWARENESS Educating NAIOP members on the various government affairs issues that affect the industry is a vital part of the association’s mission. This year NAIOP continued its very popular government affairs series with the following educational programs: • Innovation and the Future of Transportation Conference - This special conference featured innovators, the Commonwealth’s Secretary of Transportation, and others on the future of transportation and its impact on economic development in Massachusetts.

At NAIOP National’s Chapter Leadership & Legislative Retreat in February, Tamara Small, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, received the 2016 Capitol Dome Award for excellence in Government Affairs advocacy.

• Arts, Culture and Regulation on the Waterfront - Representatives from the BPDA and DEP discussed the impact of Chapter 91 on the waterfront and the latest regulatory changes. The Society of Arts & Crafts presented a case study on its experience with Chapter 91. • Government Affairs Roundup - This event featured a presentation by DHCD Undersecretary Chrystal Kornegay, as well as presentations on legislative and regulatory changes affecting the real estate industry.

CHAPTE R CONNE CT I ONS NAIOP Massachusetts constantly works to promote the image and reputation of the Chapter to the legislature, business community, press and membership through a variety of mediums.

CONNECTING THE INDUSTRY NAIOP Massachusetts works hard to keep its members, and the entire commercial real estate industry, informed, educated and connected.

• Continued to increase media and industry partnerships with Banker and Tradesman, Boston Building Wraps, Elisif Andrews Brandon Architectural Photography, The Real Reporter, High Profile Monthly and Solomon McCown.

• Enjoyed a strong presence in regional media including, The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Boston Business Journal, New England Real Estate Journal, High Profile Monthly, Banker & Tradesman, WBZ, and The Real Reporter.

The group met in May for a dinner and a tour of H.A.T.C.H. at Fenway. They also hosted an evening of networking at One Greenway for female Developing Leader members.

NEW! CREST DIVERSITY INTERNSHIP PROGRAM LAUNCHES In a focused effort to diversify the workforce in Boston’s commercial real estate industry, NAIOP formed a Leadership Diversity Committee, comprised of NAIOP Board and Gavel Members. The Committee worked with Kage Growth Strategies to pilot the CREST (Commercial Real Estate Success Training) program this summer, partnering with Dick Galvin and his team who developed the very successful CV Academy 3 years ago.

Four NAIOP member companies participated in the pilot: Berkeley Investments, Cummings Properties, The Davis Companies, and Samuels & Associates. Each organization hosted one intern for the ten week program. Interns gained valuable industry exposure, participated in professional development workshops, visited project sites, and attended the NAIOP Rock N’ Real Estate Harbor Cruise. NAIOP is expanding upon the success of the pilot and is launching the CREST program in 2017!

CHARITABL E OUT R E ACH The commercial real estate industry is known for its generosity towards civic and charitable endeavors, and in this area NAIOP Massachusetts continues to be a leader. In 2016, the Chapter maintained a strong presence in the community and actively contributed to many worthwhile charitable organizations.


• Hosted Community Connect along with AAREP New England, BSA, CoreNet New England, CREW Boston, SMPS Boston, SWEP and ULI Boston to benefit Cradles to Crayons. Close to 150 volunteers helped sort, organize and package donated clothing and children’s items. Their efforts benefited over 1,000 local children.

Students will also gain a deeper understanding of both government affairs and corporate responsibility. Over the course of eight months (September - May) students will participate in a total of 17 hours of classroom training, lecture series led by industry and business leaders, and time on Beacon Hill.
