President's Message

SIOR Inland Empire & Orange County Chapter
Message from the Chapter President, 2019 (January)


Welcome to 2019!  My name is Mike Vernick and I recently have taken the helm as the President of the IE/OC chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR).

It is my honor to be the leader of such a prestigious chapter within a globally recognized group of the industry’s most accomplished professionals.  Our chapter has a rich history of attracting the best brokers into membership, as well as top industry sponsors.  Through the frequent hosting of quality networking and educational events, along with philanthropic endeavors, our chapter will remain one of the best platforms to build lasting strategic relationships, sharpen our skill sets and give back to our community.

One of my main goals during my two year tenure as president will be to ensure we have ample opportunities to interact in meaningful and memorable ways, while providing new and unique experiences for our chapter members and sponsors.  This means new event venues, bolstered event attendance and expanded interaction with key industry players and regional SIOR brokers.  It also means the we will be striving to improve the content of our speaker events with relevant, contemporary topics, all while continuing the traditions that have made our chapter what it is today.

Another critical goal will be to continue to grow the quantity and quality of our broker membership and our sponsors.  We are a best in class chapter within the highest designation organization in the industry.  I look forward to working tirelessly towards ensuring our members and sponsors receive the utmost value from our prestigious chapter.  Thank you for your involvement and cheers to a prosperous 2019!
