Lubin Olson hosts the Real Estate Roundtable Luncheon with speaker Rex Hime, President and CEO of the California Business Properties Association (CBPA), on September 13, 2018.

We are pleased to welcome Rex Hime, President and CEO of the California Business Properties Association (CBPA) to our Real Estate Roundtable.  As a seasoned advocate in Sacramento, Hime helped to create the coalition that has several times in the past been able to stop the threat of a split roll property tax. He also provided leadership to the coalition of interests that achieved passage of the law prohibiting commercial rent control in California – making it the only state to enact such legislation. But the past year has been one of the roughest in recent memory, with very lopsided legislative Supermajorities in both Houses of the California State Legislature.  Hime  will talk about the serious legislative and regulatory challenges facing the commercial real estate industry, including the November rent control ballot and the 2020 Split Roll Tax measure, and CBPA’s ongoing efforts – from tracking legislation and regulations, to annually organizing the “California Commercial Real Estate Summit” to bring real estate leaders to Sacramento meet with Gubernatorial staff and over 1/3 of legislators –  to make sure that the voice of the commercial real estate industry is heard in the halls of power.

CBPA has over 10,000 members, and is the designated legislative advocate for numerous industry associations, including the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), the California Chapters of the Commercial Real Estate Development Association (NAIOP), the Building Owners and Managers Association of California (BOMA), the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), the Association of Commercial Real Estate – Northern and Southern California (ACRE), the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), AIR Commercial Real Estate Association (AIR CRE), and the California Association for Local Economic Development (CALED).
