If you have followed this lease administration blog for the past couple of years, or even if you have just stumbled upon it because of a question you have had related to some lease related term, you are the type of person that would absolutely benefit from ICSC’s John T Riordan School for Retail Real Estate Professionals.
Classes run the gamut of disciplines within the shopping center industry – development, management, marketing, finance, leasing and leadership and are taught by some really incredible people that have years of experience and practical knowledge in all of these fields. These classes are outstanding preparation for the examination for ICSC’s CRRP designation (Certified Retail Real Estate Professional). And, quite honestly, the breaks, meals and other networking opportunities are almost as valuable as the classes themselves. The attendees are others like you that are making a long term commitment to the industry. I regularly reach out to other attendees or faculty for opinions or guidance on issues I see on a day-to-day basis. I can’t tell you the number of times this has saved me from reinventing the wheel.
This year’s School will be held September 22-26th in Scottsdale. You can find the link below:
Although I have been attending ICSC classes for 30 years and have been teaching for the past 23 years, I never fail to learn something new and valuable for my company and its clients. If you have any specific questions about the School or its classes, feel free to comment and I will answer or get you the answer.
Faith Cooper is ICSC’s Education Manager who handles the School. If you reach out to her via email (fcooper@ICSC.org), she actually has the ability to offer a 10% discount off of tuition for those referred by faculty.
Hope to see you in September.
