WASHINGTON, DC-The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts has announced its lineup of 2010 officers, members of its executive and audit committees and new members of its board of governors. Taking helm of the organization will be the newly elected chair Debra A. Cafaro, chairman, president and CEO of Ventas in Chicago.

She will be assuming leadership of the association as it is navigating issues integral to commercial real estate and, of course, REITs. For example, in August, NAREIT submitted a letter to the IRS and Treasury Department requesting guidance on distressed debt regulations. It has also been active in FASB’s and the IASB’s proposal of multiple lease accounting methods, submitting comments on this in September.

NAREIT also announced that its first vice chair for 2010 is Bryce Blair, chairman and CEO of AvalonBay; its second vice chair is Donald C. Wood, president and CEO of Federal Realty Investment Trust; and treasurer is W. Edward Walter, president and CEO, Host Hotels & Resorts.

Also serving on the executive committee in 2010 will be Richard B. Clark, president and CEO, Brookfield Properties; Michael D. Fascitelli, president and CEO of Vornado Realty Trust; William P. Hankowsky, chairman, president and CEO, Liberty Property Trust; Ronald L. Havner, Jr., vice chairman, president and CEO, Public Storage; Edward H. Linde, CEO, Boston Properties; Peter S. Lowy, joint-CEO, the Westfield Group; Constance B. Moore, president and CEO of BRE Properties; David J. Neithercut, president and CEO, Equity Residential; Walter C. Rakowich, CEO of ProLogis; Martin E. Stein, Jr., chairman and CEO, Regency Centers; and Jay Sugarman, chairman and CEO, iStar Financial.
