YLG Leadership Forums

The Seattle YLG Leadership Team hosts an on-going series of events called the Leadership Forum designed to foster professional relationships and connections between members of the YLG community and senior level leaders in the real estate and land use fields. These are small scale and informal events at which Young Leaders can ask questions freely, gain valuable insights from industry veterans, and develop professional relationships. The conversation is specifically focused on such topics as career development, local real estate trends, and networking/educational opportunities. Since 2008, Leadership Forum events have been held with many of the region’s top developers, land use attorneys, architects, non-profit leaders, public policy experts, and politicians.

These events are open to YLG MEMBERS ONLY, and attendance is limited to the first 10 – 15 people who register.
