Message from the President


Dear Mid-Atlantic Chapter Members,

A powerhouse crowd of nearly 375 corporate real estate leaders, service providers, and developers packed The Anthem on May
9th to celebrate the Mid-Atlantic Chapter’s 14th Awards of Excellence gala. The event honored our award recipients and
celebrated the achievements of many industry leaders among friends and colleagues. Due to the hardwork of many volunteers,
we raised almost $300,000 in sponsorships and secured a record 28 nominations for the award categories. I hope you can agree it
was one of our most spectacular events. Congratulations to all our winners and outstanding nominees.

2018 has been off to a torrid pace of demonstrating value to our members and sponsors, particularly as it comes to delivering enriching programs. In April, the chapter hosted Spencer Levy, CBRE Head of Americas Research to present “The History of the Future” at the Tower Club in Tysons. Right on the heels of the gala, our Education Committee hosted “Repositioning a Building to Obtain Net Zero and Wellness” at DPR Construction, recipient of 2018 Workplace Solution Award for User Experience. The Chapter ended an event-filled May with the Richmond Program "Coworking: A Corporate Real Estate Perspective" featuring
industry leaders Kay Sargent and Vincent Ng from HOK.

We are fortunate to belong to an organization where so many volunteers passionately devote time and resources to delivering thought-provoking programs, social gatherings, and opportunities to connect with one another. I am honored to lead this growing organization and remain humbled as a result of collaborating with so many creative and intelligent leaders.

I look forward to seeing you this summer at one of our many upcoming events.

Peter Van Emburgh
Chapter President, CoreNet Mid-Atlantic
