About Us

ULI is a nonprofit research and education organization supported by its members, representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines working in private enterprise and public service – including leading property owners, investors, advisors, developers, architects, lawyers, lenders, planners, regulators, contractors, engineers, university professors, librarians, students, and interns.

ULI Washington is one of ULI’s largest District Councils worldwide, with almost 2,000 members. We welcome membership and participation from all types of organizations, both private and public, who share our commitment to responsible land use to sustain the growth and prosperity of the National Capital region.

Through District Council sponsored educational forums and events such as a trends conference, community outreach programs, and avenues for active dialogues between private industry, environmental organizations, and public agencies, we provide industry expertise to community leaders allowing them to create solutions to local and regional issues. The opportunity to influence local land use policy remains the focus and achievement of ULI Washington.
