PBS is seeking to build productive relationships with its industry partners by seeking industry input and contributions to allow for more meaningful and productive interactions during industry day events. PBS invites industry representatives from the leasing community to share thoughts, major topics of interest, and challenges that your company or industry faces with regard to GSA's leasing program. PBS intends to use the information gathered from this Roundtable event to inform the planning of its GSA Leasing Forum scheduled for February 24, 2020.

GSA is particularly interested in responses to the following questions:

  • What topics would be of interest to you during a GSA Leasing Forum?
  • Are there any specific challenges your organization faces in regards to GSA leasing?
  • What is GSA Leasing doing well and what could GSA Leasing do better?


A Moderator will pose questions to the Roundtable speakers who will respond. Virtual meeting attendees will have the opportunity to send in comments/responses regarding each question through a moderated chat function during the session.
