Get to Know the Co-Chair: Silicon Valley Programs
Get to know some of the ULI SF members who work hard behind the scenes to develop the events and initiatives we're known for.
To our YLG Community,
Over the past few months our Steering Committee has been hard at work planning our programming for the remainder of the year and into next Spring.
During that process we’ve had the chance to look back on the past year of programs and events that took place as we adapted to our temporarily digital circumstances.
Our signature Mentor Program and Development 360 went off without a hitch, and continue to provide the Bay Area’s young CRE and planning professionals with valuable relationships and resources to advance their career. Applications for the 2021-2022 Mentor Program and Dev360 are now open and filling up fast!
Young Leaders were able to connect with industry all-stars through our flagship Learn From the Best event, as well as stay in touch with each other through our Digital Trivia night covering content from our past DeTour events, and more recently sharing a few cans of locally founded Maker Wine and personal favorite recipes during our Cooking Social.
We held a cross-continent discussion on the Future of Central Business Districts with our YLG Peers from ULI Amsterdam, and spending more time at home, our Committee even launched a Book List sharing some of our favorite land use related titles like the Jane Jacob’s classic “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” and Making it in Real Estate by ULI SF’s own John McNellis.
Looking forward, we are excited to announce our first in-person event post-pandemic with the return of our Committee favorite DeTour series before year end! Keep an eye out for that formal announcement.
Many of our Bay Area YLG members will also have the chance to connect in person at the upcoming ULI Fall Meeting in Chicago as well as meeting fellow young leaders from district councils around the world, with exciting topics and evening cocktails already on the agenda.
While we continue to transition back in our in-person programs, our Committee has prioritized maintaining some element of digital offering to allow our increasingly hybrid and remote cohort to continue accessing the valuable content and connections our community is known for.
Lastly but certainly not least, we are excited to officially welcome our new Co-Chair Courtney Trunnell of Cushman Wakefield to our Steering Committee leadership. Courtney has been a key part of the Young Leaders Group steering committee for some time, as well as being involved in the broader District Council as a member of the engagement committee, and we are grateful to have her positive energy by our side.
We hope you are enjoying your summer and look forward to reconnecting in person or in the Meta-verse in the near future!
Your Young Leaders Group Co-Chairs
