PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE Rochester Chapter

END OF YEAR MESSAGE FROM OUR RAC NYSCAR PRESIDENT

December 12, 2017

From the Desk of Joseph F. "Joe" Rowley, Jr., 2017 RAC NYSCAR President:

This year of 2017 is nearly done, seeming to fly by quickly. There have been many major real estate stories in Rochester, with Chapter Meetings hosted by the developers that are making the news exciting: DHD Ventures, Gallina Development, Uniland Development, Flaum Management, Morgan Communities, Buckingham Properties, LLD Enterprises and WinnDevelopment. Many thanks to these companies for their hospitality and for making Rochester a great place to work in the Commercial Real Estate Profession. 

We kicked off the year with a talk from Robert Duffy, the President of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, and had a great turnout for our Golf Event in July, more than doubling the count from last year, due in large part to the NAIOP members joining us. We also toured Three City Center after a presentation by CBRE and the new owners, Pete Landers, Bob Morgan and Rob Sands. Kodak hosted the Chapter at the newly revamped Kodak Center for a market review, and in December, a networking cocktail reception with Greater Rochester Area Realtors was held at Sibley Square. The annual President's Dinner and Awards Banquet was held at the recently renovated Hyatt Regency Rochester, a great way to celebrate the successes of 2017. 

Have a safe and happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!!!
