A Word From Our Chair

248_bio_profileThank you for your interest in ULI Minnesota and its mission to create thriving resilient communities. We are excited about ULI MN’s growing position in the marketplace and the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead to make our region a better place to live, work and play. ULI Minnesota is uniquely positioned to convene and engage public and private sector leaders to creatively focus on land use and development challenges and opportunities, and to share knowledge and best practices and trends related to issues affecting our region in a global economy.

We do this in a number of ways, including:

  • The nationally recognized Regional Council of Mayors (RCM), supported by ULI Minnesota, was formed in 2004 as a voluntary opportunity for regional mayors to convene and focus on issues of regional significance. The RCM provides a nonpartisan platform for networking, learning, collaboration, and action that supports the region’s overall economic competitiveness, prosperity and quality of life.
  • ULI MN’s advisory service programs connect real estate professionals who volunteer their time and talent with public officials in interactive workshops geared towards strategies to improve competitiveness (Technical Advisory Panels and Navigating your Competitive Future Workshops).
  • Invitation-only, confidential conversation among industry leaders, the ULI MN Market Council, Real Estate Leadership Roundtable, and Community Development Council, take participants backstage on the projects in our market with the people that are creating them to share best practices and lessons learned.
  • The Young Leaders Group and Next 10 offers young professionals, who are and will be creating the cities and developing the region for years to come, networking, mentorship, and leadership opportunities.

I am involved with ULI MN because ULI MN makes an impact. ULI MN impacts our communities, our economy and our quality of life. ULI MN makes connections and helps me connect with others in our industry that share my passion for thriving and resilient communities.

There is much work to be done and we need your help. If you want to get engaged, please call ULI Minnesota or call me. We will help you make an impact.

ULI Minnesota actively engages public and private sector leaders in land use planning and real estate development to learn, network and join in meaningful, strategic action. The future holds many challenges and opportunities; we need the diversity of ULI Minnesota’s professional community to meet them wisely.

ULI Minnesota’s Committees serve as the local leadership for the Urban Land Institute, and are made up of leading real estate and land use professionals who volunteer their time to build a strong Minnesota presence for ULI.
