This year's Rogers Park Builders Group's Trends in the Industry Workshop, scheduled for Tuesday night, January 30th, at our old location, Information Commons - 4th Floor at Loyola University Chicago, promises to be engaging, thought provoking and fun. 
Consider all of the fascinating factors sure to influence our discussions regarding the financial and real estate markets: a record high Dow Jones; recent bumps in interest rates, strong unemployment numbers (with Illinois following other states); and a vibrant but perhaps weakening rental market.
And how will we view the impact of recent tax reform?
The Rogers Park Builders Group's Trends in the Industry Workshop, our 15th annual, is our organization's premier and often most enjoyed meeting of the year, where 80 - 110 real estate and community folks gather to discuss and debate a range of questions concerning national, regional and local economic and real estate trends, projecting outcomes in two years' time. We assign one moderator to each table who guides the discussion and gathers consensus on seven separate questions. Following the group discussion, each of the table's moderators will participate in a panel discussion where we learn each table's consensus on each of seven questions - issues like the vibrancy of the stock market, unemployment figures, interest rates, rental rates, the condo market, value of multifamily properties...
At the end of the meeting, we will learn which table moderator from our meeting two years ago came closest to projecting this year's outcomes.
