About Legislative Affairs

With today’s challenging and complex political environment, it is vital for the commercial real estate industry to be proactively involved in the political process on a local, regional, statewide and national basis. As the voice of office and industrial real estate owners, operators and service providers in the region, NAIOP Inland Empire is playing a prominent role in shaping policy and legislative discussions for the benefit of our members and the commercial real estate industry as a whole.

Industry Resources to Debunk Common Mistruths

Our chapter has created several resource pages which can be used to combat misinformation and aid industry communication with local elected officials, municipalities, and community members.

Two great examples are the below brochures which can be downloaded and distributed.
