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 time frame 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.

The program fee is $5,000 per class member.
