In Portland, the management committee is known as the All-Chairs Committee and is composed of the chairs of all committees, task forces, and local product councils. Led by the District Council Chair in Portland, this committee provides strategic oversight of local activities and programming.
This committee’s purpose is to blaze a new trail of diversity, equity, and inclusion in real estate that breaks down institutional barriers to entry and advancement for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Learn more about our DEI efforts here.
Getting the word out is vital to everything that we do, from attracting new talent, to promoting events and programs. The Marketing & Communications Committee helps to develop and implement marketing strategies for ULI Northwest regionally.
The Member Engagement Committee works to assess membership needs, market ULI to new members and facilitate regular small-scale gatherings for new and existing members to find meaningful and engaging opportunities within ULI Northwest.
