Leadership Initiatives

What are ULI Atlanta’s Leadership Initiatives?

Center for Leadership

The purpose of the Center for Leadership is to cultivate leadership and life-strategy skills by teaching emerging leaders in the real estate and land use industries how the Atlanta region gets built.

Local Product Councils
  • Capital Markets Council

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

  • Livable Communities Council

LCC is composed of 50 senior-level decision makers influencing the real estate industry, and they play a key role in ULI’s mission of providing leadership in the responsible use of land and creating and sustaining thriving communities in Atlanta. Through the exchange of information and the sharing of best practices, LCC offers industry leaders vital opportunities to further ULI’s mission.

  • Creative Development Council

The Creative Development Council (C)DC was formed in May 2016 and is ULI Atlanta’s newest local product council. The (C)DC exists as a forum for ULI members to identify and share best practices for the creative real estate owner/developer in a collaborative and confidential environment.  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 their communities. The topical focus of the (C)DC is on small-scale and infill development, adaptive reuse, and regional connectivity solutions.
