Developed over several months with extensive member feedback, the Navigator made its official debut at the 2017 ULI Spring Meeting in Seattle. The tool was created in response to members who expressed a desire to get more involved with ULI but were unclear about how to do so. Feedback from member focus groups and surveys at the 2016 Fall Meeting in Dallas indicated that members are eager to deepen their engagement and make an impact through ULI, but struggle to find a clear pathway of participation in the Institute’s various networks and programs.
The Navigator provides the transparency that many members say is needed to understand how they can contribute to ULI and make a difference in the industry and their communities. Not only does the Navigator aim to connect more members with more opportunities, but it will also help ULI gauge the opportunities that members are most interested in and identify potential gaps in the Institute’s current offerings to meet this demand.
The Navigator will work in conjunction with the Key Leaders program, a new program designed to boost engagement of ULI’s most experienced and committed members—trustees, governing trustees, and ULI Foundation governors.
