ULI Dallas-Fort Worth Center for Leadership is designed to help build tomorrow’s community leaders who are dedicated to the ULI mission of responsible land-use and creating and sustaining thriving communities.
The nine-month program consists of seven full-day sessions led by outstanding professionals in public and private sector roles in the DFW area. Each day includes presentations, panel discussions, property tours, small group activities and project analyses allowing class members insight into various market sectors and broadening their perspectives on current issues and opportunities that are relevant to the North Texas Region. Each class is restricted in size to allow full engagement and collaboration in a small group environment.
The application period for the Class of 2021 begins again this May, 2020. Check back then for updates. In the meantime, look for the “CFL Alumni” ribbons on ULI member name tags at upcoming ULI Dallas-Fort Worth Events and meet current and past class members of the program!
CFL class members have the opportunity to provide leadership on a critical North Texas regional issue through a mini Technical Assistance Panel, or mTAP, modeled after the ULI TAP. Working in teams, participants are responsible for sharing their expertise and advice to develop recommendations for a sponsor organization.
