Want to get into Commercial Real Estate but don’t know where to start? Join members of the CommercialForum Leadership Committee for an empowering “how-to” discussion on finding a mentor, getting educated, establishing a focus, networking and more! Learn what it takes to get up and running, how to advance your career and who to ask for help along the way.

Add “CommercialForum Power Lunch” to your calendar for a blend of 21st accessibility and old-fashioned “inside baseball” on Chicago’s commercial real estate market. Log on monthly for a commercial real estate power hour with nationally-renowned and locally-celebrated thought leaders, investors, developers, tech disruptors, elected officials, brokers and more.

CommercialForum Power Lunch is free to members of CAR, CommercialForum, and select affiliates. Non-members are encouraged to join CommercialForum for member pricing on future Power Lunches and other CAR and CommercialForum events, CE courses through RRES, and access to CAR’s lobbying efforts, among other perks.
