The party served as a kickoff to The Emerging Leaders and Markets (ELM) Conference. The ELM is the New York Real Estate Chamber’s signature event, bringing together leaders from Government, Business, Community Development and Finance to enlighten attendees with regard to current opportunities and innovations in a series of topical panels. The conference will convene at Columbia University’s Faculty House, March, 2020. The New York Real Estate Chamber (NYREC) expects ELM to attract 300 commercial and housing real estate professionals, along with political and community leaders from throughout the Tri-State Area. ELM will feature some of real estate’s most successful and innovative deal makers and leaders of minority-owned firms and just as important leading public policymakers, to drive the discourse, develop ideas, and relationships around sustainable development in urban communities. The ELM Conference is a uniquely powerful opportunity to connect with dynamic developers, government officials, financiers and other real estate professionals engaged in remaking the urban landscape.
