With 45 chapters worldwide, CoreNet Global is the world’s leading association for corporate real estate (CRE) and workplace professionals, service providers and economic developers. The Atlanta chapter has 350+ members and the global office is also based here which both Peggy and Darlene agreed provided their chapter of with a level of support and programming that is unparalleled.
When asked about the mission of the group, Darlene said “to learn, to grow, to connect and to belong” and she expressed that the relationships built within the group have enriched both her personal and professional life immensely. She also talked about the community that exists within the group and added that the group became even more supportive and tight-knit during the downturn in the economy.
Peggy talked about two the Special Interest Groups within CoreNet Global, the Young Leaders group and the Women of CoreNet Global and talked about how those groups work within the local chapter. (Young Leaders is very active currently, and Women of CoreNet will be launching in the near future).
