Associate, ULI Colorado

The Associate is the junior position on a close-knit, collaborative, hardworking, and fun-loving staff of four serving ULI Colorado’s 1,400 members and the greater community of Colorado commercial real estate, design, engineering, and land use planning. The ideal candidate will be a tactful “people person” with a passion for and basic professional and educational background in ULI’s core issues of urban sustainability. These include the revitalization of cities and towns, the creation of compact walkable communities, affordable housing, sustainable design and planning, healthy places, equitable revitalization, and urban resilience in the face of climate change and natural hazards. Familiarity with the fundamentals of real estate and land use policy is a plus; creativity, an excellent work ethic, attention to detail, and writing/communications skills are a must.

The Associate will work closely with leaders in such fields as real estate development, architecture, planning, government, engineering, general contracting, law, and finance.

Core skills include event planning, the management of volunteer-led programs, writing, public speaking, and general communications, accounting, and office management. The Associate position offers the opportunity to be creative, innovate, and contribute to the content development of an organization that is continually incubating and testing new ideas and putting them into practice.

The Associate serves as a professional liaison among the district council, ULI headquarters, and Colorado’s real estate, planning, and development professionals. The Associate is one of the faces of the district council—members call the Associate first for assistance and information, so it is imperative that he or she be courteous and friendly. The position requires the Associate to travel to district council events throughout the state and attend meetings, events, and programs in the early mornings or evenings.

The Associate serves as a resource for ULI Colorado’s 20-member executive committee and for 15 district council committees, interacting with them to ensure that all work is consistent with the Institute’s policies and procedures and that ULI Colorado’s goals and objectives are met. The Associate works closely with the Executive Director to maintain administrative, financial, and office operations of the district council, including membership, sponsorship, programs, communications, and community outreach.
