Our Chapter’s Programs & Events:

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 List of Speakers 2013-2019. 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. and usually held at a downtown Baltimore location. Chapter members receive 8 complimentary lunches as part of their paid annual dues. Invited guests are welcome, and there is a 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 host an annual Summer Outing in July and an Annual Dinner in November.  The details and pricing for these events vary.
