At the heart of ULI are our members and the organization is defined by what our members contribute to their communities, each other, and the real estate industry. A privilege of membership in ULI is that you can become involved in leadership opportunities by involvement in our local committees.
As a member-based organization, none of our work would be possible without the support of our volunteer committees. Our committees are composed of ULI BC members active in the field of land use and real estate and are chaired by dedicated ULI leaders that have been appointed by staff and our board.
Our Communications Committee provides marketing and PR support, and builds awareness of ULI British Columbia and its mission, and promotes its programs and events to the membership and the community through the website, social media, and other marketing and PR initiatives.
The Treasurer provides oversight for the fiscal management of ULI BC, participate in the preparation and approval of the annual budget and forecasts, approve expenditures, and provide ULI BC with regular updates on ULI BC’s financial position.
Membership & Outreach Committee
Our Membership & Outreach Committee has responsibility for actively recruiting new members and developing strategies for reaching prospective members, along with reaching out to local organizations and bodies active in the real estate development and land use fields to promote ULI British Columbia and its mission. This committee also explores how ULI British Columbia may work with local organizations on areas of common interest.
The Programming Committee is responsible for the development of a diverse range of events and educational opportunities offered by ULI British Columbia, including annual events like the Annual Real Estate Outlook featuring the Emerging Trends in Real Estate Report, and our informal monthly networking series, Coffee & Conversations, and our Technical Advisory Panel program. Our YLG Programming team promotes the interests and educational opportunities of our younger members.
The Sponsorship Committee is responsible for recruiting and retaining our sponsors. Sponsorship is fundamental to the success of ULI British Columbia and our activities are made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.
Women’s Leadership Initiative
The WLI is committed to increasing the number and visibility of women in leadership roles at ULI BC and the industry in general, by promoting the value that ULI offers for women in the industry.
Young Leaders Group
The Young Leaders Group, members under the age of 35, hosts a range of programs and events throughout the year. Events range from happy hours to walking and project tours and from technology to professional development. The YLG meets regularly and fields its own YLG Executive Committee.
In order to support our increasingly high profile events and day to day operations, ULI BC is currently looking for volunteers to help – whether helping out at an event or becoming a member of one of our committees. If you are interested in becoming part of our team, please contact us for more information.
