New project categories and volunteer recognition opportunities have been added. Nominate a project or person today.
Open to members and non-members!
Austin’s ULI NEXT initiative identifies, connects, and elevates the next generation of leaders for the built environment and ULI. Participation offers valuable networking opportunities, information, and connections to move careers forward. NEXT groups will hold meetings on a monthly basis, incorporating presentations of topical interest to its members for the purpose of promoting candid discussion from a diversity of perspectives. NEXT groups are comprised of 15-18 ULI members representing a diverse cross section of the industry.
ULI Austin’s Local Member Councils are patterned after ULI Americas Product Councils and 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. The councils are member-driven with participants determining the council’s direction, actions and deliverables. ULI Austin currently offers four local member councils – Urban, Housing, Commercial, and Regional Growth.
The Mentorship Forum is year-long professional development program designed to provide the following to Young Leader members who are under the age of 35.
Selected participants develop a broader understanding of all facets of the real estate environment; connect with ULI peers and a senior-level Mentor; and gain personal and professional development.
The 2018-19 Mentorship Forum will consist of small groups, each consisting of 10-12 Young Leader members paired with a single Mentor.
