ULI Washington Local Product Council Member

ULI Washington Local Product Council Member


ULI’s Local Product Councils (formerly Initiative Councils) are modeled on ULI’s National Product Councils. Local Product Councils are designed to engage multi-disciplinary groups of mid and senior-level professionals involved in specific facets of real estate who commit to meet on a regular basis, develop trusted connections, and share best practices. ULI Washington’s LPCs offer an opportunity for land use experts to participate in 300-400 level conversations on specific topics within the real estate industry. Councils are application-based, member-only opportunities with registration limited to 35 – 45 members.

Program fees:

  • $200 for private members
  • $150 for public/non-profit/YLG members

Expectations of the Council members:

  • Attend at least 2 out of the 3 meetings per year: site tour, speaker event, and half-day LPC summit (dates TBD).
  • Actively participate in Council meetings and information exchange.
  • Attend any program and/or event that you are involved in planning.
  • Actively participate in District Council activities.
  • Maintain an active ULI membership (Full or Associate).

ULI Washington has five Local Product Councils:

  • Housing Council – The Housing Council focuses on sharing best practices, emerging trends, and public and private approaches to producing and preserving all types of residential housing in the region. For FY24, the Housing Council will continue to focus on increasing the housing supply in the region by creating additional market-rate and affordable housing. There will be discussions from thought leaders, and subject matter experts on new technology and innovative approaches that will help drive additional supply and make housing in the region more accessible. The Council is seeking members who will actively engage in an exchange of ideas between the public and private sectors to continue to push for additional housing at reasonable costs.
  • Placemaking Council – The mission of the Placemaking Council is to provide a forum where the public and private sectors come together to share best practices in land use planning, urban design, place management and mixed-use development to create and implement temporary and permanent placemaking projects. The underlying premise is that great places, whether urban or suburban, encourage community building through inclusive social interaction, pride of place, comfortable living and working environments as well as being great stages for all manner of human activities.
  • Sustainability & Resilience Council – This Council brings together land use industry leaders to discuss the broad role of sustainability in the built environment. With a forward-thinking approach, the Council helps build the business case for sustainability through the discussion of policy, capital markets, design, technology, and specific case studies and projects. Discussions and presentations take a holistic view of sustainability that addresses all facets of sustainability including Human Health, Energy, Water, Resiliency, and more. We also seek regular program collaboration with the other Local Product Councils and related organizations outside of ULI. Recent topics have included City Climate Plans, the economic impact of Federal sustainability policies, and sustainable placemaking.
  • Innovation & Technology Council – The ULI Washington Innovation & Technology Council provides a forum for ULI members and the real estate industry in the Washington, DC region to come together to foster innovation in the industry. Innovation is broadly defined as “any new idea or solution” and includes tracks in development, design, experiential spaces, capital markets, venture capital, affordable housing, office, retail, housing, prop tech, technology, construction, sustainability, transportation, public policy and land use, research and academia, and other areas as may be of interest to membership.
  • Prince George’s County Council – This Council brings together members active in development in Prince Georges County from the public and private sector as well as members who want to learn more about the unique opportunities and challenges within the county and how they relate to the region at large.
