Benefits That Last a Lifetime

Through the Associate Leadership Council (ALC), commercial real estate professionals come together over 10 months to attend leadership development programs and lunches, receive personalized training with a professional executive coaching firm and implement a community service project. The education, network and experience gained in this relatively short timeframe has a tremendous positive effect on participants’ careers for years to come.

Selection Criteria

Commercial real estate professionals between 27 and 37 years old may apply to ALC beginning each June. Applicants must be a current TREC member and only one candidate per company may apply for each year’s class. The program fee is $4,500 per class member.
