Today is the kick-off event for the Developing Leaders Mentor Program at Mozza Mia at 50th and France in Edina. 58 NAIOP members will participate in this year’s program. Other events this year will include multiple round table discussions throughout the year, joint attendance at NAIOP breakfast program events, and a year-end appreciation party.
The mentor program has been incredibly successful in the past. It matches up leaders from many of the major industry players in town with members of the NAIOP Minnesota Developing Leaders committee. The Developing Leaders that participate in this program are given the unique opportunity to have a one-on-one relationship with real estate executives, developers, and many other individuals that provide them with invaluable knowledge and experience. It is open to all Developing Leaders and is well worth the nominal fee.

The NAIOP Board of Directors, in association with the Special Events committee, is pleased to announce exciting new changes to the annual Awards of Excellence program. These revisions include a fresh venue, new award categories, and an increased focus on attendance and publicity from the community at large. The first New Awards of Excellence will be held in September 2013. While this may be an unbearably long time for some to wait, we feel these enhancements to the visibility and prestige of the Awards will be well worth it. Projects which were completed after the 2011 Awards entrance cutoff will be eligible to be entered for the New Awards of Excellence. Stay tuned!
On September 27th, the Survivor’s Party will be held in Uptown at the brand-spanking new Bar Louie from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. This annual event is a celebration of the industry and appreciation of our NAIOP members. It’s free for members and will feature food, drinks, entertainment, and networking opportunities. Parking is comp’d by Ackerberg (the owner of the building and parking structure). We hope to see you there!

As you are all aware, a major tornado touched down in the North Minneapolis area yesterday afternoon. This particular area is served by Catalyst Community Partners, NAIOP Minnesota’s community enhancement partner.
Many of our NAIOP members have helped Catalyst and this neighborhood and they need our help more than ever this week! The devastation that occurred is much worse than it appears on the TV stations. Many families are displaced, homes are in shambles and debris is everywhere.
If you can help, please consider donating any of the items listed below. You can either bring them to the May 24 NAIOP Minnesota program (8:00 am at the Sheraton Bloomington hotel), or contact Julie Yeazle of RJM Construction at 952-893-8266 or Sonja Dusil of NorthMarq at 612-305-2144.
