Communications and Public Relations Committee 

Christine McDonald (Chair)

The Communications Committee is responsible for promoting activities of the Urban Land Institute and the Triangle District Council. Enhancing participation at ULI Triangle forums, round tables and outreach programs and promoting/disseminating ULI educational materials are primary goals of this committee. Diversity of attendance and membership is high on the list of objectives and a measurement of success.

Membership Committee

Jane Brasier (Chair)

The Membership Committee is responsible for expanding and maintaining ULI membership in the Triangle and eastern North Carolina. It is also responsible for furthering the diversity of ULI Triangle membership by continuing to actively recruit all sectors of the real estate development community (public and private sector).   In addition, the Committee will identify and develop new member engagement products and/or programs.

Round Tables Committee

Stewart Patch (Chair)

The mission of the Round Table Committee is to conceptualize, plan, and produce ULI Triangle’s educational member-only round table programs. The goal is to provide a menu of educational topics that are relevant and diverse—from project specific successes and lessons learned to discussions on areas of ULI’s policy and practice initiatives.

Sponsorship Committee

Carman Liuzzo (Chair)

Sixty-five percent of ULI Triangle’s budget comes from our Annual Sponsorship Campaign. Sponsorship allows ULI Triangle to host free member-only events, keep fees low for larger events and support community outreach and the Technical Assistance Program.  The Sponsorship Committee develops and implements the annual sponsorship plan and builds relationships with Triangle supporters.

Strategic Action Committees

TJ Barringer & Jon Wilson (Co-Chairs, Housing)
Richard Adams & Ken Bowers (Co-Chairs, Transportation & Infrastructure)
Dwight Bassett & John Healy (Co-Chairs, Technology & Innovation)

ULI Triangle’s new Strategic Action Committees (SACs) gathe members who have a specific passion and knowledge on an important regional topic, with the broad goal of providing leadership to our communities on that specific topic.  Each SAC (Housing, Transportation & Infrastructure, and Technology & Innovation) will provide a venue to gather, brainstorm, share ideas on, and discuss relevant sub-topics and trends.  Additionally, each SAC will seek to identify ways that the District Council can provide leadership, research, and/or education in our communities.

Young Leader Group is responsible for facilitating the leadership development of this valuable segment of ULI members by actively engaging its members to serve on committees throughout the District Council.  Additional goals include to organize and manage a mentoring program (Partnership Forum), and to develop and host YLG-specific programs and receptions.

Women’s Leadership Initiative Steering Committee
