We Build: Advocacy
DCBIA is the resource for DC government leaders about the real estate development industry.
Not another organization has the depth and breadth of experience to impact the legislative and regulatory environment than DCBIA. Frequently providing testimony to the Council of the District of Columbia to address crucial economic development and municipal governance issues, such as building regulation, detailed comprehensive planning, tax issues, affordable housing, community development, and sustainability, DCBIA members build Washington, DC.
We Build: Leaders
Through their professions as owners, developers, attorneys, architects, and other real estate development professionals, DCBIA members build thriving DC communities. Our members participate in top-level, content-rich educational programming about the DC real estate development industry, lead DCBIA Issue Areas, Committees, and DC Agency Working Groups, monitor trends and markets, and serve on City Commissions, task forces and study groups. DCBIA members are the best and brightest and we are unrivaled in DC real estate development advocacy.
We Build: Partnerships
DCBIA regularly partners with other business organizations such as the DC Chamber of Commerce, Federal City Council, the Apartment & Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington, Hotel Association of Washington, DC, Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, and other prominent local and regional business organizations to get results and to ensure the City's strong economic vitality.
