Breakfast at the BMC

Breakfast at the BMC Logo





The Breakfast at the BMC lecture series was launched by the Burnham-Moores Center in 2007 to showcase extraordinary real estate leaders and to address current issues that affect the real estate industry. Past speakers include philanthropist Ernest Rady, former MLB Commissioner Peter Ueberroth, JMI Realty’s John Kratzer and Janet Yellen, chair of the Federal Reserve. Real estate topics have included economic development’s impact on real estate and infrastructure needs to support real estate expansion and regional housing affordability issues.

The BMC hosted its most recent installment of its Breakfast at the BMC, titled Breakfast at the BMC: A Summer Housing Affordability Conference, on June 10, 2016. This conference was the first of a two-part conference series addressing our region’s housing affordability issues, with a follow-up conference hosted by Urban Land Institute San Diego in Fall 2016 which will address solutions to the problems raised at this event.
