Product Councils

U.S. Product Councils play a key role in ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. Through the exchange of information and the sharing of best practices, Council meetings offer industry leaders vital opportunities to further ULI’s mission. In addition, the Councils are part of the larger ULI and its work, and every effort should be made to integrate the work of the Councils into the Institute’s overall program of work, as well as to ensure that the Institute’s priorities are conveyed to Council leadership for integration into each individual Council’s work.

ULI Council members play a critical role in building communities, developing and redeveloping neighborhoods, envisioning and re-creating business districts, planning and implementing industrial parks, bringing residential, retirement, and recreational spaces to life, and designing mixed-use facilities that are a part of our nation’s sustainable urban and suburban environments.
