Benchmarking Success

The Technical Assistance Panel process includes a 1, 6, and 12 month followup with sponsoring organizations to discuss progress, challenges or changes that have occurred in the original scope of work for each panel assignment. This is an important component of the process that allows for further assistance and guidance as communities work towards implementing recommendations from the ULI Chicago panel report.
