If your CAM charges and building operating expenses are running too high, if you can't tell from the lease what you should be charged for or charging, if you’re not even sure how your lease costs are to be calculated or kept under control, this is the show to listen to. Our featured guests for this show are DAVID RODGERS, Director of Lease Audit for the Brown Shoe Co. and PAUL KINNEY, Executive Director of the National Retail Tenants Association (NRTA).
