This is a full-time, exempt position, located in San Francisco, CA.
ULI–the Urban Land Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research and education organization supported by its members. Founded in 1936, the Institute has more than 45,000 members worldwide representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines working in private enterprise and public service.
ULI district councils deliver the Institute’s mission at the local level by providing members with education, networking, and opportunities to give back to the community. With over 2,100 members across the Bay Area, ULI San Francisco (ULI SF) represents one of the Institute’s largest district councils and is the preeminent local organization focused on creating and sustaining communities through wise land use, development, and redevelopment decisions.
The closely knit and high-performing team of five people works directly with our members, who include high-level business professionals, public officials, corporate executives, and senior members of the real estate and land use community, to help facilitate and move the needle on issues that are most important to ULI SF.
The Senior Associate role is a great opportunity for someone with a passion for real estate and land use and engaging people and creating a meaningful and positive member experience at an influential and well-respected education and research institute.
