Advisory Services

“The Advisory Services program is, in my opinion, the very best outreach program offered by ULI. It truly reflects our core mission of making the built environment better for all.”

Together we are changing the world, one community at a time.

For more than 70 years, ULI members have delivered change in our cities through ULI’s Advisory Services. Whether it be the devastation of disaster, food access and healthy design, or a shortage of housing choices, Advisory Services panels have offered unbiased and independent solutions to the most complex problems facing communities.

Through this program, ULI members integrate into communities dealing with a wide array of real estate and land use challenges to provide unbiased, expert advice and specific recommendations for improvement. Members link together with local leaders to draft a plan to revive, rethink, and restore communities around the globe to ultimately enact change and improve the lives of the people who live there.

With financial support from the ULI Annual Fund, panels are able to bring together the best and brightest from ULI’s diverse membership — developers, planners, financiers, market analysts, economists, architects, designers, and public officials — to provide practical solutions and objective advice not available from any other source.
