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 executive coaching firm Rose + Porterfield Group, and implement a community service project. The education, network and experience gained in this relatively short time frame have had a profound impact on participants’ careers for years to come.
