ULI NEXT Colorado


Mission: Provide an avenue for mid-career professionals to foster leadership skills, develop professional relationships, to promote shared knowledge through education and networking.

Program Summary: ULI Next Colorado will serve to engage members of the ULI Colorado District Council that fall into the age range between a Young Leader and an Executive (i.e., age 35-45). Guided by the Co-Chairs of this initiative, Next Colorado will host 6 gatherings over the course of one year. These meetings will be scheduled by the group at the beginning of the program year for the purpose of promoting candid discussion from a diversity of perspectives through networking, tours, and group discussions.

Next Colorado is open to all active ULI Colorado members that fall into the general 35-45 year old demographic. Note: non-members are welcome to apply, but must agree to become a member upon acceptance to the program.

Participants are expected to openly discuss real world projects, successes and failures, and to actively participate in group gatherings.
