The Membership Committee encourages new memberships in ULI, introduces new members to the local District Council, and engages members in ULI’s work in the community. The Committee also tracks retention and coordinates occasional member surveys.

The Program Committee identifies topics and speakers for the bi-monthly breakfast series, local panels for national topics of interest (emerging trends and infrastructure), and for all of Chicago’s Young Leaders programming. The Committee organizes around the issues impacting the real estate industry in order to develop timely and relevant programming.
