JW Marriott Starr Pass Employees Honored by NRTA
One tradition of NRTA Expanding Knowledge Conferences that many don't know about, is the selection of one or more employees at the host resort to be recognized for their superior service during the conference. Recipients receive a symbolic Gold Key award and a cash bonus award for their efforts. This year we're proud to recognize Mercedes Vasquez (shown below with Paul Kinney and Lisa Krizek) and Andrew Lopez (not shown).

NRTA Conference Unveils Community Outreach Program
A group of NRTA volunteers kicked off their Expandin Knowledge conference experience in Tucson, AZ by working side-by-side with the kids and staff at a local Boys and Girls Club. It was a paint-spattered day full of laughs, conversation, learning, and community building as they helped restore and revitalize a teen meeting center.
This is the forerunner of a new conference activity that will strengthen the bonds with the communities that host our conferences, while also providing an interactive opportunity for people within the host communities to learn more about the the NRTA and the commercial real estate field.

NRTA's Expanding Knowledge Conference 2016 provided a thorough curriculum for training today's real estate management professionals. Over 450 attendees participated in the three-day education forum that featured 48 classroom presentations and 18 peer-to-peer workshops.

FASB New Standard Brings Most Leases Onto the Balance Sheet
FASB’s new standard is now in place and introduces a lessee model that brings most leases on the balance sheet. Both lessees and lessors are likely to face significant, additional reporting burdens.
