NRTA's Evolution - President's Message
Lisa Krizek, NRTA President
I am here to tell you that your NRTA has kept pace with today's changing real estate management environment.
Look at the curriculum offered at this year's conference. It challenges the status quo and doesn’t accept “the mess we’re in,” which is the translation of the Latin status quo.
A powerful curriculum was offered at our 23rd conference: 46 classroom presentations. 24 small discussion group sessions. 16 new presentation topics. The level of discussions at our conference was targeted and timely and will usher in the next generation of innovative solutions.
One key example of how the NRTA has evolved is the new company members who have most recently joined our ranks. Listen to their names...they are a diverse and healthy mix of tenants from the retail, insurance, financial, health care, and food service industries:
- Ziva Law LLLC
- University of Pennsylvania
- Utility Audit Inc
- Caliber Collision Centers
- The Wendy's Company
- EC Barton
- Shoe Carnival
- People United Bank
- Spec's Wines, Spirits and Fine foods
- Leslie's Poolmart
- Jason's Deli
- Canadian Tire
- Dignity Healthcare
- Fresh Thyme Farmers Market
- Whirlpool Corporation
- Torrid LLC
- Meridian Credit Union
- LL Bean
- Envoy Mortgage LTD
- McDonald's Corporation
- Hanger, Inc.
- Jackson Hewitt
They are part the new face of the NRTA and I want to formally welcome them. These new members understand that tenants who commit to educating themselves to be better, stronger and more efficient will be in a position to tackle lease assets and liabilities and recommend changes that are necessary if a company is to continue to successfully manage its real estate portfolio.
And the 2018 NRTA Founders' Award goes to...
The NRTA Founders' Award recognizes association members who have rendered distinguished service to the NRTA, their respective companies or their community. Each year the Founder’s committee reviews the nominations and makes the final determination of who should receive the award.
Kathy has been an NRTA member since 2001. During her tenure, she has presented over a dozen courses, served on the curriculum committee for over a decade, is a member of the membership committee and served on the Board of Governors. Quite an impressive NRTA resume.
