Welcome to the RELA DC Chapter! RELA’s Washington DC chapter provides an exciting platform for the area’s commercial real estate lenders to learn through timely industry programs, network and share ideas with their counterparts. Our dedicated Board coordinates a real estate event schedule encompassing different aspects of commercial real estate with a lender’s viewpoint at its foundation with the programming including insightful & educational speaker events, engaging project tours and various networking opportunities.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our past speakers, panelists and Sponsors whose support has been instrumental to DC RELA’s success over the years. We are especially grateful to the law firm Venable and Blake Real Estate Valuation & Consulting for their continued support of the organization which was even more instrumental over the last year during unprecedented times.
As we come out of the year of the pandemic (or as economists are calling the “Viral Recession”), DC RELA looks forward to hopefully having a more normal 2021-2022 year with in person events resuming, including our regularly scheduled luncheons held at Venable’s offices, local walking tours and networking happy hours. Our goal for the upcoming year is to continue bringing our members events as engaging as we have organized in the past. DC RELA has been very fortunate to have a strong long term corporate membership base since inception and as part of our growth goals for 2021-2022, we will look to expand our individual and corporate membership base to the smaller banks located in the DC MSA market.
Please feel free to contact me or any of your organization’s RELA representatives if you have any questions/ideas on how to continue improving our organization for the 2021-2022 year!
