Young Leaders Group

The Young Leaders Group (YLG) is made up of young professionals from the private and public sectors involved in real estate development, architecture, marketing, finance, urban planning, transportation, construction, public policy, and more. ULI Northwest YLG offers individuals under the age of 35 a variety of opportunities to become actively involved in helping shape the region’s conversation in land use planning and development.

Young Leaders Group

Our mission is to increase the involvement and influence of young real estate professionals in ULI; develop opportunities for the industry’s young leaders to interact professionally and socially with experienced professionals; and to provide on-going, strategic support within each of the established District Council committees. Today’s young leaders are tomorrow’s visionaries — join ULI Northwest YLG today and stay connected to the ideas, strategies and policies that will shape the Northwest region in the years to come.

YLG Leadership Forums are Evolving!

NEW! Partnership Forum Groups

If you have ever attended a YLG Leadership Forum, you know how valuable it can be.  Interacting with leaders from the development community in a small group setting is the best way to learn and stay connected. Want to get even more out of your YLG membership?  Starting in 2019, the Leadership Forums will be evolving into a new format called Partnership Forum Groups. This program will place you in a group of 10-20 YLG members with similar interests, where you will attend a series of forums under the guidance of a mentor.  Look for more information in your inbox soon, and in the meantime, enjoy attending the last few months of traditional YLG Leadership Forums.
