2016 Biennial Conference & Reunion

Record Crowd of Badgers and Friends Attend Biennial Reunion

 

A record crowd converged upon the UW - Madison Campus for the Biennial Wisconsin Real Estate Conference and Reunion with nearly 500 attendees celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the WREAA. Kudos to Program Co-Chairs Andrew Weir (MBA 1997) and Cody Langeness (BBA 2006) who headed up this year's event! The program's opening day was filled with something for everyone from the Badger Golf Open at University Ridge and the NextGen Round Table Event to the Welcome Reception and Annual Banquet set upon the shores of the beautiful Lake Mendota. Featured during the Banquet was a toast to 40 years of success of the WREAA and its dedicated membership and the presentation of the Wisconsin Award to Dan McCaffery of McCaffery Interests. The evening's celebration was made complete with a performance of favorites by the UW Marching Band.

 

The program continued at Union South the following day with an impressive slate of industry panels and dynamic speakers. Featured speakers included Neil Howe, Demographer; Byron Wien, Vice Chairman, Multi-Asset Investing, Blackstone; and Ben Casnocha, Bestselling Author and Tech Entrepreneur. Other highlights of the event included the presentation of the Distinguished Real Estate Alumni Award to Mike Casey (MBA 1983), the presentation of the Wisconsin Connection "Deal of the Year" Awards, recognition of retiring professor Steve Malpezzi and acknowledgement of Sharon McCabe who is retiring from her teaching role at the UW.  A good time was had by all, check out the Biennial pics online.
