On Wednesday, April 11 at Strada Architecture, over 30 new members and local leaders gathered to attend My ULI: Maximizing your Membership with the Urban Land Institute. This informal program focused on the impact that ULI has on Pittsburgh and how new members can engage in the District Council while better understanding ULI’s mission. Newer members were introduced to the group and shared why they joined ULI and offered personal insights to the specific value they found in membership.
Local leaders included Lynn DeLorenzo, Chair Emeritus of the Women’s Leadership Initiative, who expanded on the growing WLI presence in Pittsburgh; John Watt, Chair of Mission Advancement, who offered insight into ULI’s impact via Regional Product Councils, TAPs and Urban Plan; Chris Stoffan, Co-Chair Young Leaders Group, who overviewed programming developed by Pittsburgh’s members under 35 (and open to all) including the sold-out Tour of Kaufmann’s Grand on Fifth Avenue; along with remarks by Robin Zoufalik, Programs Committee Co-Chair, who offered yearlong themes and signature ULI programming updates.
The program concluded with relationship development over a light lunch. Many thanks to Strada for acting as event host for this important engagement opportunity.
