By the Numbers jpgCommercial real estate (CRE) development in Washington state—including the member businesses of NAIOP Washington State chapter—supported more than 56,000 jobs and contributed $8.8 billion to the U.S. GDP in 2017. That's why NAIOPWA is committed to supporting a positive environment for CRE in Washington state.  

NAIOP Washington State Chapter of the Year 2020

NAIOP Corporate has honored NAIOP Washington State as Chapter of the Year for its 2019 performance, recognizing the chapter's advocacy efforts, exceptional diversity and inclusion efforts, member engagement, and organizational growth.

In recognizing this honor, NAIOPWA's 2020 president, Tina Pappas, says, "The chapter’s ongoing success is largely due to its wonderful volunteer members, who are the backbone of the organization. It is their commitment to giving back and their tireless work ethic that have helped make NAIOPWA the leader in the industry."

In 2019, NAIOPWA grew to more than 1050 members strong, making us the fourth-largest chapter in North America. We are a group of influential and interested individuals focused on seeking the best strategies and resources to advance our commercial real estate businesses. Founded in 1976, our diverse network includes developers, contractors, architects, engineers, designers, brokers and property managers, and is a Who’s Who of the Puget Sound commercial real estate community. 

In 2018, NAIOPWA was recognized with three chapter merit awards for government affairs leadership, member growth and executive leadership, and in 2017 was named Chapter of the Year. In support of our membership, member and sponsor companies, and the overall local commercial real estate community, we undertook significant government affairs, communications, education and membership efforts over the course of the year. These included a new app, new-member support, and more than 40 educational and networking events.

NAIOP delivers up-to-the-minute information and educational programs that benefit your career and your firm. We give our industry a voice, channeling a diverse membership into a powerful coalition that impacts legislation, strengthens communities and advocates for responsible development. We fight tirelessly for policies that increase predictability for the industry, saving developers and owners time and money.
