Membership

Affinity Groups

Designed to maintain a small group dynamic even as the Association's membership grows, affinity groups allow members to discuss topics of shared interest. Each affinity group, open to a maximum of 40 individuals from member firms by invitation, is devoted to a specific topic, such as green building, international investment or capital markets. Affinity groups meet during the Spring and Annual conferences and members sign on for two year terms.

How do I join?

Affinity groups present excellent opportunities to dig deeper into specific topics during the major conferences. Interested PREA members should complete the application form and email it to Amy Laffargue, Director of Meetings and Events at amy@prea.org (860-785-3846).
