Shaping Our Industry

Our members shape the commercial real estate finance industry with our advocacy initiatives. Through a collaborative process with our members, CREFC develops official policy positions that are presented as needed to legislators and regulators. These policies are developed through participation in our forums. CREFC also maintains fact sheets in online and PDF format on all major CRE issues and informs members weekly of the latest regulatory developments. To make a difference in the direction of our industry, sign up for a forum and participate in our advocacy efforts below. Contact Justin Ailes with any CREFC policy or advocacy questions.
