Market Council

The Market Council is a group of 35 to 40 industry leaders who meet for two half-day sessions a year. Meetings consist of ULI members and guest speakers sharing best practices and lessons learned in case studies, round table discussions, and possible off-site private tours. All market council members must be transaction-based real estate professionals active in the local market. The focus will be on the most important transactions around the region: drivers, challenges, and ultimately solutions. This Council will include a balance of cross-discipline professionals. All information must be kept confidential.
