At a special reception at The Banker’s Club on May 31st, the 2006-2007 REAAC Board of Directors was announced. They are:
President: Bill Harter, account manager at Spherion Corporation
President-elect: Robert Meneses (BBA ’02), vice president at West Vest Associates
Treasurer/Secretary: Andrew Demos, ESQ., with Glazer & Associates, P.A.
Vice President/Events Committee Chairwoman: Denisse Recinos (BBA ’00), program manager for the Master of Science in International Real Estate, Chapman Graduate School of Business
Not only did the reception highlight the group’s activities over the last year (its first year as an official Affinity Group of the Alumni Association and its Business Alumni Chapter), but special guest Phillip J. Proacci, president of Procacci Development Corporation, spoke to guests about new buildings being developed in Florida that will withstand hurricane winds of 180 miles per hour. Proacci Development is the first development company of its kind in Florida to guarantee that its lessees will be able to conduct business as usual the day after a hurricane strikes.
REAAC’s leaders are looking forward to another successful year of programming and membership. Over the last nine months, the group has been able to attract more than 500 alumni and real estate professionals to its various events and has created a base of nearly 70 members—quite an accomplishment!
