Learn From the Best
Our annual Learn from the Best (LFTB) guest mentor series has been one of the most successful programs in the San Francisco district since it was launched in Fall 2005. 150 Young Leaders participate in candid roundtable discussion with 15 senior regional real estate veterans, sharing lessons learned, tricks of the trade, career paths, and personal anecdotes. The result is a mutually rewarding experience, one which allows the next generation to learn from the pros.
From Mission Bay to Mid-Market and over to the Presidio, the Deal Crawl/DeTour series has brought Young Leaders through the Bay Area’s newest infrastructure projects and urban revitalization areas. Each year, Young Leaders enjoy an all access tour of multiple projects within the chosen neighborhood, ending the day with a networking reception at a nearby venue.
Venture in the Vineyards
Just in time for the fall harvest, the YLG makes an annual trek to Napa Valley to tour the region’s newest development projects and enjoy some libations along the way. Recent highlights include downtown Napa’s Oxbow Market and Morimoto restaurant, Aetna Springs, and Rombauer’s Carneros Vineyard.
In recent years, the Ventures in the Vineyards event has also been used as an opportunity to raise funds for a valuable cause. Last year, ULI SF’s YLG raised over $22,000 to provide emergency housing assistance and financial aid to low income families affected by the Sonoma County floods.
