This will be a unique opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of the area’s top real estate professionals who are making things happen and have a personal career path they are willing to share.
Boardroom After Dark kicks off in March with Marijke Smit of Project Frog. We have three additional dinners lined up that will be led by Lydia Tan of Bentall Kennedy, Lynn Tolin and Cathy Greenwold of TMG Partners, and Lynn Sedway of Sedway Consulting.

Interested in attending? We’re looking for ULI members with:
A maximum of 10 ULI members will be selected to attend each Boardroom event, and an application is required.
