A Message from the President
I hope you don’t miss the opportunity to connect, collaborate, and learn with more than 2,500 other corporate real estate professionals at the CoreNet Global North American Summit in beautiful, sunny Southern California. The Summit offers so much in a short period of time. You’ll be amazed by how much you learn, how many connections you make, and how many ideas you will be able to bring back to your organization!

Please take a look through the guide that follows which contains useful information to help you navigate the Summit including who from New England will be speaking and who has been nominated for global recognition. I hope you’ll find this resource helpful and I hope to see you at the Summit next week!

Thank you,

S uzanne Cooper
