The Urban Land Institute’s New York District Council is committed to advancing ULI’s mission to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide. ULI New York is the leading multidisciplinary real estate organization in the region for expanding your network and increasing your industry knowledge.
ULI New York achieves its influence through our members who volunteer to provide leadership and participate on various committees, local product councils, affinity group networks (Women’s Leadership Initiative, Young Leaders Group, NEXT), and programs (UrbanPlan, Technical Assistance Panels, Mentor Program) that are the backbone of the District Council’s program of work. Members support and drive our programming efforts, educational forums, public outreach and advocacy initiatives, and the sharing of best practices in responsible land use in the New York region.
We invite you to collaborate with your industry peers to help ULI New York advance ULI’s mission priorities of decarbonization, increasing housing attainability, and developing the next generation of diverse leaders.
A key objective of ULI New York is to increase diversity and inclusion in our organization and in the real estate and land use industries. Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) emphasizes the importance of diversity to intentionally engage and leverage each of our members’ different perspectives to promote the change and advancement required to better create and sustain the thriving, resilient, and equitable communities that are the foundation blocks of ULI’s mission.
