Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs)
The ULI Michigan Technical Assistance Panel Program
The ULI Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) program brings the finest expertise in the real estate, planning and development fields together to collaborate on complex land use and redevelopment projects. TAPs are designed specifically to be run and implemented by District Councils, and are intentionally flexible to provide sponsoring organizations a customized approach to specific land use and real estate issues.
Technical Assistance Panels (TAPs) provide expert, multidisciplinary advice to local governments, public agencies and nonprofit organizations facing complex land use and real estate issues throughout Michigan. Drawing from our seasoned professional membership base, ULI Michigan offers objective and responsible guidance on a variety of land use and real estate issues ranging from site-specific projects to public policy questions.
A TAP consists of unpaid volunteers ULI members in the Michigan District Council chosen specifically for each assignment. Panelists usually include at least one for-profit or nonprofit developer, designer and/or planner, market and/or financial analyst, and a regulatory expert. Panelists with a potential conflict of interest will be deferred for other client opportunities.
National Advisory Services Program
ULI’s National Advisory Services Program was established in 1947, and ULI has since completed more than 600 panels, in 47 states, 12 countries, and 4 continents.
Panels bring together the best and brightest from ULI’s diverse national membership, including developers, planners, financiers, market analysts, economists, architects and public officials to provide practical and candid advice unlike any other.
