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.

Disruptive technology is all around us. The Global Young Leaders Network invites ULI members under 35 to submit a 60-90 second video telling us about an innovative real estate technology or idea.

ULI wants to tap young leaders’ wisdom. Videos should tell us how the real estate industry is being transformed by new technologies and what it means for the future of the built environment and how we live and work within it.

Please describe your vision for how these new technologies are challenging current industry practices, fostering more resilient communities, and changing the world around us.

The top three videos will be featured at Fall Meeting and the producers of the winning video will receive complimentary Fall Meeting registration.

The submission deadline is September 1, 2015. All videos should be uploaded to Dropbox here: http://on.uli.org/ULIVideoChallenge

Learn more about the criteria and spread the word among your Young Leaders Network with the ULI Tech Challenge flyer.
