PORTLAND, Maine - In early 2017, MEREDA announced the formation of a new committee for its enthusiastic emerging leaders. DevelopME was formed with a simple mission: "To engage membership and create professional development opportunities within MEREDA for the next generation of industry professionals".† In addition to creating a "Lunch & Learn" series, the committee is also working on a mentorship program and other special projects to cultivate and connect MEREDA's future leaders within the organization.
The MEREDA Board of Directors recently approved a board seat for the DevelopME committee co-chairs. The two co-chairs will each serve one year of the 2-year term on an alternating schedule.† We are excited to announce that Sam LeGeyt of Harnden Commercial Brokers will serve this first year, and Cameron Woodford of Northern New England Housing Investment Fund will serve the following year.
Sam LeGeyt joined Harnden Commercial Brokers after graduation from the University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics. Since then Sam has used his education in Finance and Real Estate to counsel and advise multiple clients across the office and investment landscapes of the Southern Maine commercial real estate market.
Cam Woodford works as an Acquisitions Analyst at Northern New England Housing Investment Fund, where he helps source and analyze equity investments in affordable housing projects across Maine and New Hampshire.
“MEREDA’s board of directors are thrilled with the success of this new committee, and look forward to seeing it continue to grow”, says Shelly R. Clark, Vice President of Operations for MEREDA. “Sam and Cameron have brought a lot of energy to the committee and we are excited to see what is yet to come.†
