Welcome to the RELA South Florida Chapter. I’m proud to serve as Chapter President and am excited for the coming year. Our Board worked extremely hard over the last two years to set the foundation for this chapter’s growth amongst the challenges posed by COVID. Thankfully, with their hard work, we were all able to come back together during our 2021- 2022 fiscal year with in-person events. Of course, last year’s successes couldn’t have been possible without the generosity of all our sponsors. RELA is extremely thankful for their contributions.
As we continue our momentum, one of our primary purposes is to provide a platform through social engagement to grow your networks within the commercial real estate lending community. The Board has planned for another exciting and informative schedule of events this year. Our intent is to build our membership by engaging lenders from all three South Florida counties to promote connections and share ideas. I encourage you to attend as many of our events this year as possible. And, if you’re not a current member, try us out. I think you’ll find it personally and professionally rewarding.
Your attendance and participation are the keys to building our chapter. Please feel free to approach the Board or staff with your inquiries and ideas regarding membership, sponsorship or programming. And, I hope to have the opportunity to meet you personally and enjoy a conversation at an upcoming event.
