    Join us on February 15th from 2-5pm at SPUR to learn how UrbanPlan supports the next generation of diverse real estate leaders. This interactive training will prepare you to become an UrbanPlan volunteer at a future workshop for public officials or students. This is a great way to get to know other ULI members, explore giving back and volunteering yourself, and get a taste of the concepts covered in an UrbanPlan workshop, all over drinks and light snacks. 

    UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging exercise in which participants—high school and university students, or public officials—learn the fundamental forces that affect development in our communities. Participants compete to redevelop the fictional neighborhood of Elmwood, and in the process become empowered to engage effectively in land use decisions with their communities. As ULI member volunteers, you will help the students consider their choices, understand the trade-offs, and learn about different careers in the real estate industry. Read these testimonials to better understand the impact that this program has on students and volunteers. 

    In advance of this session, we ask that you complete this one-hour on-demand training, and then join your fellow members in-person on February 15th to test out your facilitation skills, play with some LEGOs, and ask any questions. What's better than your ULI friends and LEGOs?
    Many thanks to our workshop facilitators, Jen Hembree and Jane Lin
