The Urban Land Institute is a nonprofit education and research institute whose mission is to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in communities worldwide. Established in 1936, ULI today has more than 48,000 members around the world representing the entire spectrum of land-use and development disciplines including developers, builders, property owners, investors, architects, public officials, planners, attorneys, engineers, academics, and others engaged in the land-use field.
The Philadelphia District Council delivers the ULI mission in the local region and encompasses about 900 members throughout Philadelphia, Central Pennsylvania, Delaware, the Lehigh Valley and Southern New Jersey. ULI Philadelphia members guide the direction and body of work of the district council through a network of more than 20 committees and councils ranging from issue-specific product councils to affinity groups to operational committees.
The Senior Associate's overall responsibility is to serve as an informed resource to support the district council’s various content centers and member networks, interacting with them to ensure that all work is consistent with the Institute’s policies and procedures and that ULI Philadelphia’s mission, goals, and objectives are met. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Senior Associate is responsible for engaging and leading local volunteer members, managing committees (local product councils), executing events and initiatives, and leading marketing and communication efforts.
The position requires that the Senior Associate attends district council events and functions in person mostly in Philadelphia and surrounding regions, and occasionally throughout U.S. Meetings, events, and programs may be in the early mornings or evenings.
