President's Message

On behalf of the 2020 NAIOP Silicon Valley Chapter’s Board of Directors, I would like to thank our members and President’s Council sponsors for their support and involvement in NAIOP.  I would also like to encourage those in our industry that have yet to join NAIOP to act now and get involved with the real estate industry’s most dynamic trade association.

NAIOP continues to be a strong voice for commercial real estate in Silicon Valley.  Our top priorities are "Knowledge, Opportunity, and Advocacy". NAIOP Silicon Valley provides educational support by engaging top industry professionals and experts as our program speakers and participants. NAIOP Silicon Valley offers career advancement through exciting networking and social opportunities to our members, sponsors and guests. NAIOP also advocates for the commercial real estate industry in public policy and legislative affairs at the national, state and local levels.

In 2007 the Chapter launched one of its finest achievements: the NAIOP Silicon Valley Developer Hall of Fame.  This annual testimonial dinner provides the commercial real estate community the opportunity to honor legendary pioneers of the Silicon Valley Commercial Real Estate Industry and generate a permanent oral and video history documenting the key role our industry has played in the establishment of Silicon Valley.

I encourage you to join NAIOP and to contribute to the advancement of the commercial real estate industry.  Once you have joined NAIOP Silicon Valley, I hope that you will take full advantage of our programs and networking opportunities by sponsoring an event or joining the President’s council.  Through the President’s Council, member companies contribute over and above their individual membership commitment, insuring that NAIOP Silicon Valley will continue to thrive.

Thank you for the privilege to serve as your chapter president for 2020.


Dick Scott, President
NAIOP Silicon Valley Chapter
