Regional Land Use Leadership Institute


Why Participate?

This is a leadership program for mid-career professionals in the public, private and nonprofit real estate and planning professions, primarily for professionals who are poised to assume leadership positions in their organization or profession in the near future. In addition to learning about real estate, there is a leadership component to the program, with presentations and interaction with top leadership consultants in the area to help participants recognize and strengthen their leadership skills.

It will help build a network of other professionals in a cohort of 30 professionals as well as 150 alumni who have completed the program.
