ULI Washington Committee Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in getting involved with ULI Washington’s Committees. Please submit your application by May 31, 2021.

The Urban Land Institute’s Washington District Council is committed to advancing ULI’s mission to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide. Through leadership and participation on our committees, ULI Washington members inform and drive our programming, public outreach and advocacy, and ULI’s impact and influence in the region. Committee participation is also an important avenue for expanding your network and fostering industry relationships. Committees meet throughout the year to plan events, programs, and initiatives that further the mission of ULI and meaningfully contribute to the industry and the region.

Please use the links below to apply for a position on a committee for a one-year term concurrent with ULI’s FY22 (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022). The application period closes on May 31, 2021. ULI Washington’s leadership will review your application, determine your eligibility, and finalize the committee roster in June.

The application pulls information from your ULI member profile. If any of the information is incorrect, please make sure to update the information in your profile here.

A key priority of ULI Washington is to increase diversity and inclusion in our organization and in the real estate and land use industries. Diversifying our membership, raising the profile of our diverse members, and fostering an inclusive community are important to fulfilling ULI’s mission of creating and sustaining thriving, resilient, and equitable communities. Recent changes to ULI’s member profile page allow members to self-identify race, ethnicity and other demographic information.  We encourage you to update this information to further our efforts to track and further diverse membership. 

NOTE: These opportunities are available only to ULI members. You will need your ULI account login credentials (email address and password) in order to submit an application. If you need assistance logging in or resetting your password, please contact ULI Customer Service at 1-800-321-5011 or customerservice@uli.org

Upcoming Opportunities:

Additional ULI Washington Program opportunities will be available in June including: 

Initiative Councils are modeled after national product councils. Initiative 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 has five Initiative Councils focused on Housing, Placemaking, Sustainability, Innovation + Technology, and Prince George’s County.

Mentorship Program – The ULI Mentorship Program allows Young Leaders in small groups to be paired with a mentor and engage on a variety of topics affecting our industry. Groups will be able to learn from each other across different disciplines and projects, as well as engage with the broader group through social events. 

NEXT – ULI Washington’s NEXT program engages and supports mid-career members (i.e., age 35-50) as their responsibilities and leadership roles grow and they aim to expand their impact in their companies, careers and communities while broadening their skillset.
