Local Member Councils are topically focused, multidisciplinary groups that meet regularly to exchange ideas, examine industry trends, and share information and best practices in a collaborative and collegiate manner. They are member-driven and led by co-chairs. Each council determines their program content, guest speakers, and meeting schedule. Meetings are meant to be discussion focused, even when seeded by a guest speaker. Limited takeaways will be shared with the greater ULI San Antonio membership at a PechaKucha-type event.
This Fall, ULI San Antonio will be launching some new Local Member Councils (LMCs). LMCs are small groups of ULI members focused on exploring and discussing specific topics concerning the land-use trends and the challenges that affect South Texas.
LMCs are designed to engage members with their expertise and passions. LMCs are member driven and geared towards providing for an informal and engaging exchange of ideas and information. LMCs may meet monthly or bi-monthly depending upon the interest of the individual members. In June, 2021, each Local Member Council will prepare and present on their topic at a ULI/SA PechaKucha-type event.
The following poll is designed to gauge interest in various topics that may form the basis for the initial LMCs. Each LMC will have a chair and a co-chair that will help direct discussions and programming towards the subsidiary issues that members of the LMCs are most passionate about.
If you are interested in organizing and leading a Local Member Council, email Karl Baker.
VALUE TO SAN ANTONIO COUNCIL MEMBERS:
- to connect peers who can exchange “state-of-the-art” information in parallel disciplines
- to provide education from the deep resources of ULI locally, nationally and globally
- to foster collaboration that maximizes impact on development challenges and opportunities
Council Members will be drawn from the full range of disciplines involved in the product type. A minimum of twelve (12) Council members will be selected to participate with balanced representation from the following:
- Development Firms, including Real Estate Investment Trusts or Corporations,
- Financial Institutions involved in lending, investment, or institutional sales,
- Professional Service Firms, including planning, architecture, real estate economics, public finance, land use law, and real estate brokerage,
- Government/Academic Institutions, including State, County, City or other public sector or non-profit entities (e.g., academic), and

At least three meetings and various lunches of the Council will be held annually (one per quarter). Council Members will agree to remain on the Council for a minimum of one year, and will be required to attend all three meetings to maintain their membership.
