NAIOP members influence legislation that protects and advances the interests of all industry players, across the board through local, state and national political advocacy, including: 

  • Professional lobbying and congressional testimony.

  • Participation in issue coalitions.

  • Political support of industry-friendly members of Congress and candidates through the NAIOP-PAC.

Annually, NAIOP NAIOP Raleigh Durham (with the chapters in the Piedmont Triad and Charlotte regions) visits Capitol Hill to share with elected officials the experience and views of the NAIOP Members.  Throughout the year, we maintain contact with these officials, monitor important regulatory and legislative issues. Our leadership also travels to D.C. to discuss issues affecting our industry every day.”
