Partnership Forums

Each Partnership Forum consists of 8-12 participants (YLG members only) and an established senior member of ULI Triangle (the mentor).  These groups meet on a regular basis for a year in an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust, and openness to share in each other’s business and personal experiences.
