MEMBERSHIP BREAKDOWN NAIOP Members by Profession:
NAIOP Members by Sector:
MEMBER ONLY EVENTS The Chapter held several member-only or free for member events this year, including: two Coffee with Colleagues held at Studio (Tishman Speyer) and The St. Regis Residences, Boston (Cronin Development); five Space Spotlights held at The Harlo (Skanska), Time Out Market (Samuels & Associates), DraftKings Headquarters (Oxford Properties), Center Plaza (Synergy Investments) and The Wing; two Developing Leader Executive Dinners (with Sara Cassidy of AEW Capital Management and Jessica Hughes of Tishman Speyer); a government affairs NAIOP Member Briefing from National Grid and Eversource; and Member Appreciation Oktoberfest at LINK.

It also provides a great location for the Chapter to hold networking events, onsite courses and committee meetings.
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. None of this would be possible without the support of NAIOP Gavel Members and NAIOP’s volunteer Government Affairs Committee members. 2019 saw the beginning of the 2019-2020 legislative session, an increased focus on climate and energy issues affecting real estate development and ownership, numerous transfer tax proposals, and increased municipal engagement on myriad policies. The following are just some examples of NAIOP’s advocacy work in 2019:
ADVOCACY • Provided extensive input and detailed comments on numerous regulatory issues including MCP regulations, energy code, housing policy, and the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board. • Successfully advocated for changes to the Board of Building Regulations and Standards’ Energy Advisory Committee to include important industry stakeholders, while consolidating expertise. • 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. • Hosted a Fire Safety Briefing as members of the Construction Fire Safety Partnership, which was created following several large loss fires in 2017. The group includes industry groups, regulators and fire officials. Case studies are now underway to highlight best practices for preventing similar fires in projects under construction. • Filed new legislation to address a wide range of issues including site plan review, zoning appeals, the Land Court’s permit session, utility connections, and more. Met with legislative leaders and new legislative committee chairs on specific bills. • Successfully advocated for the passage of the Student Opportunity Act, a $1.5 billion investment in education, as members of the Massachusetts Business Alliance for Education. Passed by both the House and the Senate and signed by the Governor, the bill focusses on closing persistent achievement gaps and preparing students for college and workforce opportunities. • Provided testimony and input on a record number of climate and energy related bills and policy initiatives, ranging from solar rooftop installation mandates to zero net carbon construction. Filed proactive climate-resiliency legislation, An Act to Promote Coastal Resiliency Projects, to encourage the construction of coastal resiliency projects designed to protect properties, infrastructure and neighborhoods from the effects of climate change. • Successfully advocated for an increase in the budget line item funding the Attorney General’s Wage Theft Unit, increasing resources for the investigation of wage theft claims and enforcement of existing laws. • Testified in support of the Governor’s Transportation Bond Bill, which lays out the capital plan for addressing issues with the MBTA and statewide transportation infrastructure. Joined the Massachusetts Business Coalition for Transportation to advocate for practical solutions to the transportation issues plaguing Massachusetts. • Advocated for passage of the Housing Choice Bill. Joined a coalition of housing advocacy groups, real estate, and the Massachusetts Municipal Association to advance this legislation, which is an important step in addressing the housing crisis in Massachusetts. • Increased NAIOP’s presence at Boston City Hall, commenting on issues ranging from the Boston Lobbying Ordinance to the Wetlands Ordinance. The City made several changes to the wetlands ordinance based on NAIOP input and, in 2020, NAIOP will be involved in the development of the implementing regulations. Successfully defeated a Petition for a Special Law re: An Act Relative to the Zoning Board of Appeal, which would have removed all technical expertise from the Boston Zoning Board of Appeal.
ADVA NCE + CHANG E • Attended numerous working groups at the city and state levels on a wide range of issues, including: implementation of the state’s 80 x 50 carbon reduction plan; the BBRS’ Coastal A Advisory Group; the City of Boston’s 2019 Climate Action Plan Update; and many others. • Developed and strengthened relationships with elected officials and policy makers at state and city levels. Private meetings and member briefings with: Governor Charlie Baker, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito; Secretary of Administration & Finance Michael Heffernan; Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development Secretary Michael Kennealy; Undersecretary for Energy Patrick Woodcock; Department of Revenue Commissioner Chris Harding; Chief Justice of Land Court Gordon Piper; MBTA Head of Real Estate Richard Henderson, Senate President Karen Spilka; Senate Ways & Means Chair Michael Rodrigues; Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo; DEP: Commissioner Marty Suuberg; Mayor Marty Walsh; City of Boston Environment Department: Carl Spector and Alison Brizius; key legislative committee chairs and city councilors. • Tracking more than 200 bills before the legislature affecting the real estate industry. Legislative advocacy will continue through the close of the legislative session in July 2020.
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. • Energy Efficiency & CRE: Ambitious New Goals, Codes and Technologies: Following the adoption of a new statewide energy code, NAIOP hosted industry energy experts to discuss new requirements and strategies for increased energy efficiency.. • Luncheon with Boston Planning and Development Director Brian Golden: NAIOP members heard from Director Golden on proposed changes affecting the permitting and development of projects in Boston. • Member Briefing with National Grid and Eversource Representatives: Representatives from National Grid and Eversource provided an update on efforts to address concerns from the real estate industry regarding a lack of timely and predictable connections. • Breakfast with EEA Secretary Kathleen Theoharides: Secretary Theoharides was appointed to her position in May of 2019. In June, she discussed climate adaptation and resiliency efforts statewide, clean energy initiatives, and green-house gas mitigation goals. • Transportation Briefing with MassDot Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack: Secretary Pollack provided an update on the Commonwealth’s transportation programs, priorities and implementation strategies. Members were briefed on important legislative proposals that seek to expand public-private partnerships to pave the way for important continued infrastructure investment. • Carbon Free Boston + What It Means for CRE: NAIOP members were briefed on the City’s recently released 2019 Climate Action Plan Update and the City’s efforts to require net zero carbon emissions for new and existing properties.

VIDEO EVENT HIGHLIGHTS The Chapter began a partnership with Boston Virtual Imaging to promote NAIOP events with video highlight clips. Videos are shot during events and then shared post-event on social media and in follow-up emails to attendees. The purpose of these videos is to highlight what NAIOP events are all about and to encourage professionals to get involved with NAIOP. We look forward to continuing this partnership into 2020.
THE BIG DIG PODCAST SERIES - NEW! This year, NAIOP Massachusetts began a partnership with BLDUP to create The Big Dig podcast series which can be heard on SoundCloud, Spotify and iTunes. Each episode focuses on a trending topic or project spotlight and features guests who are the top minds in the industry. Many of the topics are extensions of NAIOP programs. Panelists are invited to be guests on the podcast at the conclusion of the program to continue the conversation with more in-depth insights of what they shared during the event. This year, 14 episodes were recorded and have a combined 10,000+ listens.
COMMUNI T Y I MPACT DIVERSITY, EQUITY + INCLUSION Diversity, equity and inclusion in the commercial real estate industry is a top priority for the Chapter. In 2019, NAIOP sought to address DEI through several initiatives:
• Equity, Inclusion + Diversity Summit: NAIOP partnered with other local associations, including AAREP, Builders of Color Coalition, CoreNet New England, CREW Boston, GBREB and ULI, on a program that brought some of the area’s most forward thinking DEI experts to teach attendees how to help their organizations make small steps to big change.
• Gavel Diversity Workshop: The Chapter hosted a DEI training workshop for Gavel Members that was led by Malia Lazu from the Urban Labs. The workshop was focused on creating a shared vocabulary around the language of diversity work, and a deep understanding of institutional and systemic structural bias. • CREST Internship Program: To encourage women and minority college students to pursue careers in commercial real estate, CREST pairs high-performing juniors and seniors with local developers, brokerages, architects and other CRE companies. In the past two years, 32 students from Boston-area colleges have participated in the program at 22 firms, leading to 16 full time positions.
• REEC CRE Summer Intensive at MIT Center for Real Estate: NAIOP partnered with the Real Estate Executive Council (REEC) and NEXUS Summer Programs on a 12-day residential program held primarily on the MIT campus. The program provided high-GPA high school students of color with the basics of commercial real estate, architecture, technology, finance, marketing and community impact, culminating with student teams creating real estate business plans and delivering Shark Tank-style pitches.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT 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 2019, the Chapter maintained a strong presence in the community and actively contributed to many worthwhile charitable organizations including Community Servings, Heading Home, Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance, The Margaret Fuller House and United Way.

The Developing Leaders members are comprised of 400+ rising professionals, who represent all facets of the industry. Several members of the committee also held leadership roles on NAIOP’s Executive Committee. Besides presenting a full line-up of programming and networking events, the DLs also showed support for the community by partnering with Heading Home through drives and volunteer nights.

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM The Chapter launched a Mentorship program this year.

We plan to continue the program in 2020.
