Local Member Council Structure?

Local Member Councils are designed to engage members based on their expertise and passion within the land use industry.   Local Member Councils are topically focused, multidisciplinary groups that meet regularly to exchange ideas, examine industry trends, and share information and best practices in a collaborative and collegial manner.   

Local Member Councils are member-driven and led by co-chairs. Each council determine’s their program content, guest speakers, and meeting schedule. Meetings should be discussion focussed even when seeded by a guest speaker.  Limited take-a-way’s is shared with the greater ULI Austin membership.

ULI members who serve on a Local Member Council are expected to attend regularly to fully participate in the exchange of information and advance the goals of the Local Member Council. The success of the Local Member Council is dependent upon active participation and meaningful contribution by all members.

Membership on each Local Member Council is limited to 12-20 people and is determined by application. The application process is designed to ensure an engaging experience that includes diverse, multidisciplinary perspectives on each Local Member Council. If a Local Member Council is full, a wait list is created and members will be invited to join as availability opens up.  At the discretion of the Local Member Council co-chairs, a limited number of guests may be invited to select meetings.
