Comprised of 130 real estate leaders, the Board of Advisors is a core support group for the Graaskamp Center, advising the Center, participating in exclusive board lifelong learning opportunities and conferences, and contributing as guest lecturers and mentors. Learn more about our events here.
Drawn by invitation only from senior executives in the real estate industry, representation on the board is sought from the array of functional areas related to real estate and urban development.
The board pledges to support the Graaskamp Center through annual contributions. Member support is a critical element in the overall structure of the Center. Support from our board members not only reflects commitment to strengthening the future of the professional through the highest quality education and research, it provides an important funding source for students and other educational and outreach initiatives
Among the benefits available to board members are:
Expand your professional network and connect with students and faculty at our twice-a-year board conferences and join us “On the Road” in Milwaukee, Chicago, New York, and beyond for exclusive, small-group topic discussions.
From timely and topical presenters to the economic outlook from our world-class faculty, you will have access to the vibrant and exciting resources that come with being affiliated with one of the top academic institutions in the world.
