The Urban Land Institute is a non-profit, education and research-based organization that stands at the forefront of the land use and real estate industry — a steadfast leader in the best practices for a changing world. For over seven decades, ULI has been a unique and trusted forum where members come together to share and exchange ideas, information and experiences to shape tomorrow’s horizon and improve the way communities grow.
ULI’s mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities. ULI Virginia carries forth that mission by serving the public and private sectors with pragmatic land use expertise and education. With over 42,000 members worldwide, and over 410 members in Virginia, ULI represents a spectrum of land use and development disciplines — including developers, builders, investors, designers, public officials, planners, real estate brokers, attorneys, engineers, lenders, academics and students.
By engaging locally, our members grow their network within Virginia’s real estate community, expand their industry knowledge, and give back to our community by volunteering with one of our 14 committees, including Programs, UrbanPlan, Young Leaders, Local Product Councils, WLI, Mentorship, and more.
