The organization offers extensive programming that ranges from professional networking and mentorship to field trips and site visits.

AREA also participates in the Commercial Real Estate Development Association (NAIOP) SoCal Real Estate Challenge, a competition that hosts five person teams from each of USC’s and UCLA’s business schools. Each student team creates a real estate development proposal for a specific location. The most recent challenge was attended by nearly 300 real estate professionals. In 2016, UCLA’s team developed a strategy to develop a 5.07-acre site in the City of Inglewood and was awarded the Silver Shovel for its work.
