Americas Young Leaders Group Steering Committee Member


Thank you for your interest in getting involved with the Americas Young Leaders Group (YLG) Steering Committee. Please submit your application by COB Monday, August 1, 2022. 

The Americas Young Leaders Group (YLG) Steering Committee is an opportunity for any Urban Land Institute member under 35 to participate on an organizational committee at the Americas level. Committee participation is an important avenue for expanding your network and fostering industry relationships. The Americas YLG Steering Committee and subcommittees will meet throughout the year to plan young leader-focused events, support the annual Young Leaders Exchange, provide networking support for YLG District Council Chairs, as well as coordinate additional programs and initiatives that further the mission of ULI.  Members of the Americas YLG Steering Committee are highly encouraged to attend the ULI Fall and Spring Meetings. 

The Americas YLG Steering Committee supports the Urban Land Institute’s DEI Mission, “Pursue unrelenting efforts to shape the built environment toward diverse, equitable, inclusive communities.” 

*Travel is not required to join the Americas YLG Steering Committee; however, it is encouraged for committee leadership to attend both the ULI Fall and Spring Meetings. 


  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Subcommittee: The DEI subcommittee works hand in hand with the Steering Committee Chairs and subcommittee chairs to make sure all events and initiatives are executed through a diverse, equitable, and inclusive lens.  The subcommittee is supported by ULI’s DEI Department and connects with them regularly to align organizations’ goals and outcomes.   
  • Programming Subcommittee: Plan, facilitate, and execute Americas-level programming and events for ULI’s Young Leaders Group affinity network while upholding and pursuing ULI’s broader mission and commitments to its members. 
  • Networks Subcommittee: Facilitate cross-channel communication and engagement between District Council YLG’s throughout the Americas, and other ULI affinity groups such as NEXT or WLI. 
  • Student Subcommittee: For ULI undergraduate and graduate student members, this subcommittee coordinates with ULI Learning and the University Connections team to support, engage, and retain Student members through their ULI journey.  


The application for the Americas YLG Leadership Application will be open from Wednesday, June 22 to Monday, August 1. Once all applications have been collected, the Americas Young Leaders Group Steering Committee leadership and the District Councils staff will review the submitted materials. Accepted applicants will be notified of their acceptance by late August and will be invited to start attending committee and subcommittee meetings in September. 


By applying to join the Americas YLG Steering Committee, you will also be asked to apply to one of the subcommittees: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI), Programs, Networks, or Student.
