Committees and Leadership

As a member-based organization, none of our work would be possible without the support of our volunteer committees. Our committees are composed of ULI members active in the field of land use and real estate and are chaired by dedicated ULI leaders that have been appointed by staff and our board. Want to get involved? Download our committee descriptions and contact our local committee chairs directly to learn more about our work and how you can get involved.
