ULI NEXT’s mission is to foster professional growth, develop strong industry relationships, build a personal brand, and promote knowledge-sharing through peer interaction for ULI’s emerging leaders.
ULI NEXT is comprised of mid-career professionals seeking to foster relationships with industry peers in areas such as land use, planning, development, title, brokerage, government, engineering, construction, and law. NEXT members are assigned to small groups that meet monthly to discuss industry issues, exchange ideas and provide professional feedback and support. Groups are designed to maximize a member’s exposure to the diverse backgrounds and industries represented by fellow NEXT members.
The application process for 2017-2018 ULI NEXT membership has ended. Applications for participation in the 2018-2019 group will be accepted May-June 2018.
