Babins Attend CRE Mid-Year Meetings

IMG_0334Both Logan H. Babin, Jr., CRE and Logan “Hank” Babin, III, CRE attended The Counselors of Real Estate (CRE) 2014 Mid-Year Meetings in Austin, TX from May 4-7.  Besides meeting and sharing ideas with fellow Counselors from around the globe, Logan and Hank were proud to participate in sessions involving capital markets, urban redevelopment, stigmatized properties, land use/energy/environment, professional practice, and discuss and vote on topics for the CRE 2014 Top 10 Issues in Real Estate (being released nationally on June 11).

Hank also had the opportunity to take a development tour of Mueller Airport (an award winning, public-private redevelopment of Austin’s former airport into a mixed-use urban center) and listen to a presentation by Texas Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman on the economic impact of oil and gas on the economy.

This conference also allowed them to be present for their roles on various CRE committees.  Logan, a past CRE Chairman, sits on the Invitation Advisory, By-Laws, and Ethics Committees while Hank is on the Communications Committee.

“Being at a CRE function is invaluable,” Hank said.  “The education and learning opportunities don’t end when a session ends.  It continues in the hallways with further interaction with fellow Counselors.  The collective experience and knowledge in one place is staggering.  It’s really an honor to be able to participate.”

This was the second straight CRE conference that Logan and Hank attended.  They were both on hand in October in San Francisco for the 2013 CRE Annual Convention.  In the Bay Area, Hank was officially inducted into the organization after being invited as a member in 2012.  Logan received an award, along with his fellow members on the Invitation Advisory Committee, for Outstanding Achievement by a CRE Committee.
