Regional Competitiveness Initiatives Council Mission Statement
The Regional Competitiveness Initiatives Council convenes to consider opportunities for specific solutions to metropolitan Washington challenges where regional cooperation can enhance solutions. The Council promotes the importance of finding regional solutions to ULI members, thought leaders, business and government officials and the public at large.
The Council engages in the following activities:
- Convenes regularly to share successful regional initiatives in the National Capital Region and from other Metropolitan areas nationally and internationally;
- Advocates broadly for the importance of implementing regional approaches to policy problems, especially those related to land use and transportation;
- Supports regional strategies aimed at increasing transportation funding for Metrorail as well as local highway and transit system priorities
- Fosters collaboration with other public, private and non-profit sector regionally-minded organizations to ensure that ULI’s uniquely progressive private sector perspective is prominent in regional discussions.
