NAIOP’s annual Real Estate Challenge (REC) matches teams from regional universities’ real estate programs in a competition focusing on a development or redevelopment project in the Puget Sound area. Teams are tasked with forming a proposed investment strategy based on the site sponsor’s needs. In 2017, the REC is being hosted by NAIOP BC; the program returns to Seattle in 2018 and is now seeking committee members, including incoming committee co-chairs.
