Our monthly programs are typically held on the third Wednesday of the month for lunch with a speaker addressing a timely topic and discussion: Baltimore LAI Chapter List of Speakers 2017 – 2021. The discussions are just as informative and stimulating as the presentations, given that the unique audience of highly knowledgeable “land economics” experts with diverse interests and perspectives. These programs are held from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Chapter members receive 8 complimentary lunches as part of their paid annual dues. Invited guests are welcome, and currently we have suspended the modest lunch program guest fee.  The luncheon meetings provide continuing opportunities for chapter members to stay abreast and develop and nurture personal friendships and business relationships with other members and invited guests. We usually host an annual Summer Outing in July and an Annual Dinner in the Fall.  The details and pricing for these events vary.

Please feel free to introduce your colleagues to LAI by inviting them to join us for these valuable educational and networking events.
