2/18/2023 – NAIOP, MSC and PIOGA

Moody and Associates, Inc. had an eventful day Thursday, February 16th with some great partners and organizations.  We kicked off the day by attending NAIOP’s February Chapter Breakfast which provided us with a Hospitality update focusing on restaurant and retail. Panelists discussed the trends and challenges with bringing restaurant/retail to downtown.  The panel included Herky Pollock of CBRE, Emily Sipes of Atlantic Retail, Sidney Sokoloff of Specialty Group and Jennifer Hass of GetGo.  Adele Beaves of Kimley Horn moderated the event.

Marcellus Shale Coalition provided a platform for Oil & Gas Spill Reporting and Remediation Training.  Attendees were able to receive hands on training from industry experts including the PA Department of Environmental Protection.  Our own Jeff Walentosky and Jessie Bobrzynski were part of the speaker and moderator lineup.

Finally, the day ended with a great networking event with PIOGA’s annual Cigar Networking Event held at BURN by Rocky Patel.  Attendees were able to catch up with friends/colleagues, discussing business and perhaps enjoying a cocktail and smoke.
