ULI Charlotte News

Now Accepting New Applications for the Regional Initiative Councils

Modeled after national product councils, the mission of the regional council program is to convene councils comprised of ULI members to promote learning, build District Council leadership, share knowledge and expertise and encourage regional collaboration.

The RICs provide opportunities for leadership and volunteer involvement in the ULI, at the regional level, by promoting excellence in programming, by fostering a culture of openness, and by sharing issues critical to land use planning and real estate development. Click here for more information.
