CMC’s mission is to convene a group of ULI Members and Capital Markets professionals. The intent of this unique partnership is to:
- Inform and update its members on current regional and national issues unique to the commercial real estate financial markets.
- Allow its members an opportunity to introduce new concepts and other financial programs.
- The format has been designed to inform and engage its members in issues that are directly related to their daily professions.
The format of the CMC will be as follows:
- One meeting during the last month of each quarter following the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)
- A Federal Reserve representative will provide insight on recent policy statements and initiatives directly related to the commercial real estate capital markets.
- CMC members will be provided the opportunity to introduce new concepts or programs. In addition, each member will have the opportunity to seek input and feedback from the group as well.
Each meeting will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
Membership in the Council is by application, and five of the members will rotate each year, creating opportunities for new participants.
Participation in the CMC requires membership in ULI and annual CMC dues. CMC seeks members who:
- Are committed to the principles of leadership in the responsible use of land;
- Demonstrate leadership and real world experience in development, ownership, management and/or capital markets professionals.
- Have varied backgrounds and a diversity of expertise.
CMC’s Executive Committee is comprised of five people, Thomas Brown of Ernst & Young, Chip Davidson of the Brookdale Group, Faron Hill of Peregrine Oak, LLC, Greg Winchester of TriMont Real Estate Advisors, and Brian Bailey of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
