Young Leaders Group

The Young Leaders Group (YLG) creates a unique setting for early career professionals and students under the age of 35 by offereing opportunities for the next generation of leaders to develop skills and build relationships that will help advance their careers and foster an understanding of thoughtful development practices.

Young Leaders Group

ULI encourages young professionals to become involved early in their career so they can begin building key relationships with industry leaders. To make this an easy first step, ULI offers a 50% membership discount for people under age 35. The Young Leaders Group (YLG) offers members a chance to develop long-lasting peer relationships, as well as benefit from more seasoned minds in the industry.

The YLG brings a fresh perspective with a vision for the future. The YLG is full of energetic professionals from all aspects of the real estate industry – developers, investors, bankers, attorneys, architects, engineers, brokers, general contractors, and graduate students.

Throughout the year, the YLG hosts a number of programs and events, including panel discussions and presentations, insider’s tours of emerging properties and social events such as networking happy hours. Young Leaders receive invitations to all district council events, in addition to receiving all of the local, national and global benefits of a ULI membership.

Get Involved

We are always looking for fresh perspective and welcome Young Leaders to get involved by contributing program ideas, volunteering to help plan or support an event, or writing a social media post or event recap.
