  • The importance of involving the Board early, and consistently providing updates, when building a long-term real estate strategy for your Association.
  • The need for the Board to understand varying market conditions and leasing decisions, whether the requirement is a small in-place renovation or a cross-country headquarter relocation, due to their fiduciary responsibility to members.
  • Workplace considerations, including efficient floor plans, employee satisfaction and adequate parking.
  • The significance of prominently branding your interiors with success stories to help amplify the member experience and promote morale.
