Webinar #13 DCBIA Small Business Advocacy Briefing

Many people think DCBIA only represents large businesses when in fact we advocate for businesses of all sizes and have a diverse membership - from small developers and architectural firms to art organizations, law firms, and more. A little known fact that I want to shout from rooftops is that 1/3 of DCBIA's membership is small businesses.

Entering into the final phase of the Comprehensive Plan Amendment process, DCBIA will continue to play a lead role to provide expertise to this important land-use and planning document.

As the world began to change in early 2020, DC also marked an important milestone in the real estate industry. DC's top three real estate trade associations installed women executives as chairs simultaneously - a first in DC's history.

The tumultuous year includes a devastating economic crisis spurred by a global health pandemic and a demand for racial justice, diversity, and economic inclusion. Join these industry women real estate leaders for a discussion about the impact of these changes as they entered their historic role as chairs, and the transformational impact 2020 is having on DC development and construction, residential sales, property management, commercial leasing, as well as industry employees and city residents. The event will begin with an economic consideration and forecast amidst COVID by Yesim Taylor, Executive Director of the D.C. Policy Center.


Thanks to these companies and their leaders for continuing to support DCBIA programming during this unprecedented health and economic emergency.
