Due to on-going concerns about the current outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), NAIOP NWFL leadership has decided to postpone our Annual Economic Update. We do not have a new date set, but we are looking into late summer / early fall options. We will continue to keep you informed to the best of our ability as we reschedule.
Our members, partners and colleagues are our top priority and we strongly believe this is the right decision given the current circumstances. We appreciate your patience at this time and hope you are all staying safe and healthy. As always, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
