    The Real Estate Committee is proud to announce its latest NAPABA Real Estate Case Study of the Kauffman Center, which is a new, beautiful, and vibrant center with an interesting back story, and home to the Kansas City Ballet, Lyric Opera, Kansas City Symphony, and other creative programming.  After a brief committee meeting on site, we will make the short walk to the Center for a behind-the-scenes tour, during which we hope to learn about some of the challenges that were overcome in building the Center.  This Case Study is open to all, not just committee members, and spouses and guests are definitely welcome!  Comfortable shoes are recommended since we will be doing a fair amount of walking. If you or your guests require a wheelchair or special transportation assistance, please notify Maria Volpe-Viles at mvolpeviles@vsquared.biz.
