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.
