What are ULI Atlanta’s Leadership Initiatives?
Local Product Councils
The Capital Markets Council was formed in 2014 with the mission of engaging each member on substantive capital market trends and larger financial issues that affect each of us individually and our industry more broadly. We structure the content to facilitate two-way conversations with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and we look forward to you bringing your experience and perspectives to bear. Key to the success of the Council is rich dialogue among senior-level industry experts.
In May 2016, the Creative Development Council was formed in response to an increasing emphasis on and demand for the highly innovative projects happening across metro Atlanta. The ultimate goal of this education-oriented council is to expand the contextual framework, relationships, and resources for members so that they might better shape and contribute to ULI’s mission commitments of building more sustainable, inclusive, and equitable communities. The topical focus of the CDC is on small-scale and infill development, adaptive reuse, creative housing solutions, and regional connectivity solutions.
In July 2013, the Livable Communities Coalition merged with ULI Atlanta as the Livable Communities Council (LCC). In January 2014, an inaugural 50-member council was formed. The LCC’s mission is to promote the mission of ULI in shaping the future of cities for transformative impact worldwide. The council does this by focusing on the critical role affordable housing plays in the Atlanta region, transit investment, improved connectivity, and regional and cross-jurisdictional collaboration. The LCC is focused on engaging for impact, and members seeks to serve not only as thought leaders but also as practice leaders of responsible development.

The mission of ULI Atlanta’s Center for Leadership (CFL) program is to cultivate leadership and life-strategy skills by teaching how the Atlanta region gets built and how these decisions shape the future of the built environment. During the program, participants provide thought leadership on a critical Atlanta regional issue through an mTAP (mini-Technical Assistance Project). Working in teams of 4-5, participants are responsible for sharing their professional expertise and advice to develop recommendations for the client. All projects are completed on a pro-bono basis and provide participants an opportunity to give back to their communities in meaningful ways that advance the ULI mission of shaping the future of cities for transformative impact worldwide. Over the course of CFL’s twelve-year history, participants have advised over 60 sponsor organizations, municipalities and public agencies on complex real estate and land use challenges. To see the final work product, all past mTAP projects are archived here. For more information, please contact Barbra Hardy at [email protected]
The mission of the ULI Women’s Leadership Initiative is to raise the visibility and number of women leaders in ULI and the real estate industry. In 2020, the Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) launched “The Leaders” with the goal to increase the presence of women in the real estate and land use industry, especially in leadership positions and board rooms, as speakers at industry conferences, subject matter experts and everything in between.
