Principal Jim Hanford will be discussing “Navigating the Carbon Offset Market” at the 2024 NAIOP Washington State Chapter Conference.

  • David Leon, Vice President – Real Estate, Forterra
  • Andrew Sahl, Senior Project Manager, OAC Services
  • P.J. Tillmann, Deputy Director, Cascadia Consulting
