The Young Leaders Group (YLG) network creates opportunities for young professionals under the age of 35 to develop skills and build relationships that will help advance their careers and foster an understanding of thoughtful development practices.
Young Leaders are the key to the future of real estate and land use. Now more than ever, it is critical for future leaders to have access to the knowledge and tools necessary to succeed in their careers and professional networks.
The mission of the Young Leaders Group is to strengthen relationships and participation with the organization, provide opportunities for professional education and mentorship, offer networking within the local membership base, and encourage relationship building with senior members.
Additionally, the YLG Steering Committee is tasked with improving leadership opportunities, facilitating the overall growth and diversity of ULI membership in this age cohort through improved retention rates, and broader ULI participation.
