NEXT engages and supports industry professionals, 35 years old and above, who are in transition from mid-career to senior leadership within their organizations.
ULI NEXT is a distinct affinity group where mid-career leaders can engage in discussions around topics that impact their businesses, help them develop professionally, and support a deeper understanding of the community in which they live. The affinity group offers a platform for networking and knowledge sharing within the Americas and district council network, developing industry best practices, leadership skills, and career success.
ULI has an opportunity to grow NEXT engagement by:
- Developing graduates from the Young Leaders Group (YLG).
- Elevating professionals making strides within their respective firms and supporting those advancing to C-suite positions.
- Providing visibility and leadership opportunities throughout ULI in lockstep with one’s career progression.
NEXT Programming Themes
The group distinguishes itself from other ULI affinity groups by defining four unique programming themes to drive purposeful engagement for members who consider themselves “mid-career.”
Building visibility and relationships among ULI members, district councils, and initiatives.
Identifying, encouraging, and bringing attention to opportunities for initiative and change.
Excelling professionally and growing personally; transition into lead decision-making roles during the prime period of careers.
Bringing insights and engagement on topics at the forefront of industry and community change.
ULI Annual Fund
Supporting the ULI NEXT Americas through annual giving is one of the most powerful ways you can make an impact. Unrestricted contributions to the ULI Annual Fund ensure that NEXT has the resources to acknowledge opportunities and address unforeseen challenges with the expediency that would otherwise not be possible.
Donors can choose to designate their contribution specifically to the NEXT program, ensuring that their gift is personally meaningful, or make an unrestricted donation with the assurance that it will be applied to meet ULI’s greatest needs.
