I am thrilled to serve as President of RELA Boston as we enter our third year. From its inception in 2009, RELA Boston has since woven itself into the fabric of Boston’s real estate market. These past few years have been particularly difficult for those involved in the real estate industry, making it imperative for real estate lenders to have a strong network of support. RELA Boston, in this capacity, provides for its members a unique place to gather together and discuss industry trends and issues. Our goals for 2011-2012 include enhancing the membership experience by growing membership yet keeping the size of our audience intimate enough to keep dialogue between presenters and members flowing and very candid.
2010-2011 for RELA Boston was a busy year; we hosted programs such as cocktail receptions, round table lunches, and breakfast meetings with key influencers in the Boston real estate market. After such success, RELA Boston is looking forward to another eventful year ahead. To kick-off 2011-2012, we are honored to invite Tom Alperin, President of National Development, to speak at our Breakfast Meeting on October 18, 2011.
There is no better time to join RELA Boston. We are offering a discounted rate of $275 for one year of membership from July 1st to June 30th. Keep in mind that this membership includes admission to all RELA programs in Boston, New York, Washington DC, and Chicago. For more information about membership, please contact David Friedman (firstname.lastname@example.org or 646-855-4028) or Sarah Berman (email@example.com or 212-692-9379).
I hope to see you soon at an upcoming event in Boston.
James Partridge, President
RELA Boston, 2011-2012
