ULI San Francisco has multiple professional development programs that allow members to grow their networks, learn from their peers, and receive mentorship while exploring topics relevant to the real estate and land use industry. Explore each of the programs below:
Young Leaders Group (YLG)
YLG aims to create opportunities for young professionals under the age of 35 to develop skills and build relationships that will help advance their careers and foster an understanding of thoughtful development practices.
Development 360 spans the academic year and consist of seven, in-person sessions in San Francisco. The cohort of young professionals receives an overview of the real estate and land use industry from senior-level leaders on topics including acquisitions, design, entitlement, engagement, and more. Applications are accepted between July and August of each year.
The Mentor Program provides young professionals in the real estate and land use industry with mentorship, career development support, and networking opportunities through cohorts consisting of young leaders and a senior-level mentor. Applications are accepted between July and August of each year.
The NEXT initiative aims to connect and elevate the next generation of leaders within ULI globally and the real industry more broadly. The initiative is tailored to mid-career professionals 35 years of age and over.
The NEXT Cohort Program consists of dedicated groups of 8-12 peers that explore topics and activities such as leadership and management experiences, deal-related “lessons learned”, project tours, and peer-to-peer discussions in small, intimate group settings over the course of several months. Applications are accepted in the spring of each year.
Local Product Councils (LPC)
The ULI San Francisco Local Product Councils provide an opportunity for Associate and Full members to meet in a peer-to-peer environment to share and discuss issues that real estate and land use professionals face on a daily basis. Sharing many characteristics with ULI’s National Product Councils, the ULI San Francisco Local Product Councils are consistent with ULI’s tradition of sharing experiences gained, mistakes made and lessons learned. At the moment, ULI SF hosts Residential, Commercial, and Innovation Local Product Councils.
