About the Chapter’s Monthly Luncheon Meetings

The Chapter has moved its meetings to virtual gatherings. The upcoming meeting format includes a presentation and a n opportunity to connect with colleagues in break out rooms through Zoom. The presentations, by top professionals and industry and government leaders, focus on a broad range of timely issues affecting the Washington metropolitan region and often the greater interests of the nation. The discussions are just as informative and stimulating as the presentations, given the unique audience of highly knowledgeable "land economics" experts with diverse interests and perspectives. The luncheon meetings provide continuing opportunities for chapter members to both stay abreast and develop and nurture personal friendships and business relationships with other members and invited guests.
