Keynote: Political Update

Dr. Larry Sabato
Election Analyst and Best-selling Author, Founder and Director of the U.Va. Center for Politics

Super Tuesday , the candidates, politics and the players. CL&LR is the perfect place to hear from Dr. Larry Sabato, one of the nation’s most respected political analysts, who will tell it to us straight and help us understand what's coming for Congress, the White House and more. Sabato is a professor of politics at the University of Virginia and the founder and director of the U.Va. Center for Politics. He is the author of the recent book TRUMPED: The 2016 Election That Broke All the Rules, which explores the 2016 election and its shocking outcome. Dr. Sabato is the author or editor of two dozen books on American politics and appears multiple times per week on national and international news including FOX, CNN, MSNBC, and CNN International.

Capitol Hill Day

We encourage every chapter to take advantage of the opportunity to meet with your respective representatives and senators to voice NAIOP’s legislative concerns on critical issues.

NAIOP will provide materials and education on the issues most pressing to our association and industry during CL&LR – but first you need to schedule your appointments.
