November 2021

Although we are all still challenged by the times we are very grateful for all the support and engagement here at Cornell. As the Director of CREF I want to express my delight as we welcome eight new members to the advisory board. Coming from diverse and wide ranging perspectives, these members will add to their strengths to our already powerful and active board. We are also looking forward to the 13th Annual offering of the IRECC and are thankful to Prof. Dan Quan for spearheading this initiative since its inception.  Also, our CREC/CREF conference is up and running and I am so very thankful for the leadership at the Cornell Real Estate Council for their continuing engagement with CREF and our Cornell community.

I look forward to welcoming many of our board members to our first face to face board meeting on November 19th, hosted graciously by Dan Peek and HWE. For those board members not able to attend in person, we will provide a zoom link so you can participate virtually.
