NAIOP Chapter News: November 2020
2021 NAIOP Upstate NY Sponsorships are now available! This is a great opportunity to stay connected and maintain exposure for your business in the real estate and development industry.
Your sponsorship will support the ongoing work of the local NAIOP chapter and be featured on programming, communications and on the NAIOP Chapter website. We also encourage you to consider supporting our Advocacy Program, Upstate New York’s only group solely dedicated to advocating for the real estate and development issues on the local, state and federal levels.
This past year has been tremendously challenging. Let NAIOP help you and your colleagues get reconnected and focused on new growth for 2021. We look forward to working together in the new year!

One topic that seems to be surrounded by a lack of information is salary data for the commercial real estate industry. It is vital that managers and owners have access to this information to attract and retain the best talent. To that end, NAIOP has published its 2020 NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Compensation and Benefits Report. Is your salary and bonus package competitive? Find out with the 2020 NAIOP/CEL Commercial Real Estate Compensation and Benefits Reports.
These valuable reports enable commercial real estate businesses to stay current on salaries, bonuses and benefits for professionals in executive to entry-level positions. The reports include submissions from over 300 companies; salary, bonus, incentives and benefits for up to 200 positions; and data from 100,000 distinct jobs in the office/industrial, retail and residential property sectors.
Enjoy and we hope this is helpful as you plan for what will be an important year upcoming.
With this I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
