INLAND EMPIRE, CA—“The entire commercial real estate community must understand that our role in defending the industry is critical, especially in California.” That is according to Justin McCusker, NAIOP SoCal board member of legislative affairs, chair and senior executive at C.J. Segerstrom & Sons. “It is no longer simply enough to state our case relative to the laws impacting the future of business and our industry, we must also educate as to the value of our industry at the local, state and national level. Our chapters are at the table with the elected officials who are making decisions that impact not just our businesses but the future of the State where we do business.”
