NAIOP North Carolina members with Senator Thom Tillis last week in Washington
Members of the Charlotte Chapter of NAIOP traveled to Washington, D.C., last week to meet with members of Congress about issues critical to North Carolina’s commercial real estate industry. The Capitol Hill visits were part of NAIOP’s annual Chapter Leadership and Legislative Retreat, and gave Charlotte developers a chance to advocate on a range of topics, including:
Establishing a reasonable cost recovery period for qualified leasehold improvements;
Advocating for increased federal investment in our national infrastructure, including roads, ports and bridges; and,
Encouraging Congress to incentivize energy-efficient construction without imposing new mandates.
