Developing Leaders Committee

Developing Leaders Committee

The aim of the Developing Leaders is to actively engage young commercial real estate professionals in Calgary under the age of 35. NAIOP members who meet this requirement are automatically enrolled in the program, which entitles them to participate fun and inclusive networking events and enjoy access to practical and insightful educational opportunities.

The mentorship program, offered exclusively to NAIOP Developing Leader members, connects young professionals to an extensive network of industry leaders, providing valuable opportunities for personal and professional growth through focused, one-on-one mentoring sessions. Through the dedicated efforts of both current and past committees, the NAIOP Developing Leaders has become the membership of choice for emergent industry professionals in Calgary with bold ambitions for future chapter growth.
