ULI Austin Local Member Councils, modeled after ULI National Product Councils, are small groups of ULI members focused on exploring and discussing land-use trends and challenges that affect Central Texas.
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 collegiate manner.
Local Member Councils are member-driven and led by co-chairs. Each council determines its program content, guest speakers, and meeting schedule. Meetings should be discussion focused even when seeded by a guest speaker. Limited takeaways are 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 the 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 waitlist 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.
