District and National Councils are at the heart of ULI: they deliver the ULI mission at the local level.

Marilee Utter, Executive Vice President, ULI District/National Councils

District Councils deliver the ULI mission at the local level. They engage local members through developing various ULI priority programs, hosting educational forums, and convening events such as special initiative conferences keyed to the release of publications like Emerging Trends in Real Estate and the annual Infrastructure report. By conducting community outreach programs and providing industry expertise to community leaders, District Councils focus on opportunities to foster collaboration locally and build healthy, sustainable communities.
