Spring meeting of our Board of Advisors by Graaskamp Center Staff
Last week we were in Chicago at the Gleacher Center for the spring meeting of our Board of Advisors. The spring 2010 meeting featured a particularly compelling agenda including our keynote speaker Sam Zell and panels addressing the state of the industry, opportunistic investing and the outlook on healthcare.

The board meets twice a year--in the fall on our hometurf in Madison and in the spring in nearby Chicago--to hear from experts on important issues facing the real estate industry and to discuss the economy and business trends. The next meeting will be September 15-16, 2010 in Madison.

The Board is a core support group for the Graaskamp Center, advising the Center on its agenda, participating in exclusive bi-annual board meetings, and contributing to the Wisconsin Real Estate Tradition as guest lecturers and mentoring students. Comprised of representatives from the professional community including the private, corporate, public, and non-profit sectors, board members work in the wide array of functional areas related to real estate and urban development such as brokerage, property management, consulting, development, appraisal, investment, asset management, law, mortgage banking, lending, corporate real estate, institutional investment, syndication, planning, regulation, and design. We're grateful to board members for their support of the Wisconsin Real Estate Program. Board membership is by invitation only.

We will have more photos and a recap of the meeting on our website very soon. To stay up to date on the Wisconsin Real Estate Program events and opportunities, sign up for our monthly newsletter.
