CRED supports and empowers RBA members who are in real estate, development and construction through networking, resource sharing and education. Members will be those in real estate, development, construction and allied fields.
The first meeting of the RBA Construction, Real Estate and Development Committee (CRED) had over 45 people in attendance. It truly was a successful launch.
Meetings will be held on the first Thursday of each month from 4:30-6:00pm. The next meeting will be on Thursday, November 10, at Casa Mia House in Blauvelt.
Michael Shilale said, "It's imperative we make this Council work. We hope to attract several subcontractors and municipal leaders to join us and help create a private/public partnership---that includes lenders, engineers and everyone connected in economic development.
The County cannot live on two percent growth. It's difficult enough to stay within the state's two percent tax cap.
We need to grow, and that includes construction. It's the only way we can move forward."
Thank you to the group's founders: Judith Bachman, Esq., Irving Zuckerman, Verticon Construction and Michael Shilale, Architect.
