Getting Involved


Value Content Events
As the preeminent, multidisciplinary real estate organization in the world, it is the goal of ULI to facilitate the open exchange of ideas, information and experience among local, national and international industry leaders. In conjunction with this mission ULI Young Leaders periodically hold what we call Value Content Events. Similar to the DFW Development Showcase, Value Content Events are informal evening events that provide real time education regarding the latest approaches and practices for all sectors of commercial real estate including (but not limited to) finance, development, brokerage, and investments.


Networking Socials
One of the greatest benefits that this organization offers for its members is the ability to network and socialize with industry peers on a regular basis. Networking socials are informal events that are held periodically over coffee or at bars or restaurants and allow members the opportunity to meet with each other and discuss the latest events in the commercial real estate sector.


Community Service
In an effort to utilize our time and energy towards the betterment of our community, the ULI Young Leaders host the Building Industry Leaders program annually while DISD is in session. If you’re looking to make an impact and mentor the youth of our communities while sharing you skills and industry knowledge, Building Industry Leaders is right for you. In addition, ULI Young Leaders will host individual events with other local non-profits, typically around the holidays.
