District Council Rebranding & West Michigan Expansion
As the only Urban Land Institute District Council in the state, we have always been a Michigan-focused organization. However, with the head office located in Detroit, the District Council had historically focused the majority of programming in Southeast Michigan. Even with the outreach of programming to Grand Rapids, Lansing and Flint under the name of ULI Detroit, a sense of separation from the other regions within the state remained.
In September 2011, the Detroit District Council of the Urban Land Institute, aslo known as ULI Detroit, proudly announced that the District Council would be expanding its services and growing its membership under a new name; Urban Land Institute (ULI) Michigan.
The rebranding of the District Council and expansion of programs and events demonstrates the our commitment to the Mission of the Urban Land Institute by making ULI resources and services available to areas outside of Southeast Michigan. In order to facilitate the introduction of ULI programming and events to a wider audience, the West Michigan Programs Committee was formed.
West Michigan Programs Committee
The West Michigan Programs Committee is committed to promoting ULI’s best practices and principles throughout the western region of Michigan. The Committee strives to deliver programs that feature many of the exciting developments, approaches and concepts that are successfully revitalizing and transforming urban areas throughout West Michigan.
The West Michigan Programs Committee is proud to continue to bring quality ULI Michigan programs to West Michigan in 2015 and beyond.
