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.
Are you looking for an opportunity to get involved with ULI?
Through our members, we provide leadership in the responsible use of land to create and sustain thriving communities. Help us make an impact. Expand your professional network and increase your knowledge base by volunteering for a committee.
