2019 Emerging Leaders Series - Chicago
Join us for a very unique Emerging Leaders event in Chicago on May 14 when we will host a private Chicago architectural boat tour aboard Chicago’s First Lady. The tour will feature Mary Ludgin, Heitman’s Head of Global Research, to be our docent/tour guide.
In addition to knowing our industry, Mary is a phenomenal speaker on all things architectural in the Windy City and used to be Mayor Daley’s personal docent for tours around Chicago with various dignitaries.
This event is open to NMHC members and non-members, so please feel free to share this with your network of contacts who might be interested in learning more about NMHC and our Emerging Leaders program. (Space is limited, however, so registrations are on a first-come, first-served basis.)
