We are thrilled to announce that mayoral candidate
Paul Vallas will be delivering our keynote address at the October 23rd Annual Meeting of the Rogers Park Builders Group, at Loyola University Chicago's McCormick Lounge, 6:30PM
Mr. Vallas is a well known name in Chicago and is lauded as a capable and thoughtful administrator. Perhaps his most notable stint was as CEO of Chicago Public Schools from 1995 - 2001 and he is a former Superintendent of the Recovery School District of Louisiana (post Katrina), the School District of Philadelphia,  and chief administrative officer at Chicago State University

Last week, Vallas unveiled his plan to solve the affordable housing problem in Chicago. Please see this Chicago Sun Times article describing his proposals, with his approach including solutions long advocated by our Associate Member, Marty Cerny.
We will learn about the candidate's background and qualifications, his positions, and how he sees his campaign's path to victory.
After we hear Mr. Vallas'' remarks, we will convene a panel consisting of our four outstanding new Directors, approved (and, in Doug's case, re-approved)  at our June 'Directors Only' meeting.
Each of our panelists will present a five minute 'teaser" overview focusing on their respective field of expertise:
 Nick Hollenkamp, Pioneer Acquisitions
(shifts in investor preferences)

Doug Imber, Essex Realty
(on multifamily market)
Jerry Lumpkins, BMO Harris
(lending environment, as rates increase)
Laszlo Simovic, Laszlo Simovic Architects LLC
(code changes & navigating thru the permit procurement process.)
Of course, we will begin the evening with a hearty dinner, beverages, networking, and we will announce the winner of the 2018 President's Award recognizing an RPBG member for contributing to the success of our organization and/or to the local real estate scene.


Location McCormick Lounge at Loyola University Chicago campus
