The ULI Atlanta Awards for Excellence program recognizes outstanding real estate development projects or initiatives that exemplify ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities. The program identifies and promotes best practices in all types of real estate development.
Dear valued ULI Atlanta members,
I hope you and your families are doing well and adjusting to these uncertain times.
After much consideration and counsel with ULI Atlanta leadership, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Awards for Excellence Dinner. The health, safety, and wellbeing of our community and those who contribute to making the ULI Awards dinner a unique experience is not something we take lightly. Therefore, we are shifting our efforts to planning the Awards for Excellence Dinner for the 2021 calendar year. It is our hope that we will be better positioned to bring everyone together to celebrate projects and people who demonstrate excellence in advancing the ULI mission.
Throughout this time of virtual ULI gatherings, we hope you continue to join us for our program offerings. Please be on the lookout for ways we are continuing to recognize our sponsors and all that our ULI members are doing for the community in these times.
We appreciate your understanding and continued support as we navigate this challenging period together. Please reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions you may have. We look forward to the time when we can be together in person to learn, celebrate, and share a good laugh as has become tradition with the awards dinner.
All the best,
