“I moved to Wisconsin from Texas less than 5 years ago, not knowing any Wisconsin real estate professionals. I quickly joined NAIOP Wisconsin and became involved in the Membership Committee and then in the newly-formed Madison Committee. I can honestly say that I owe 100% of the professional network I have developed in Wisconsin to my involvement in NAIOP Wisconsin. The chapter’s members are engaged, interested in meeting new faces, and willing to listen to a new member’s story.”

—  Derek Taylor, Husch Blackwell
