Life Trustees are individuals whose service to ULI has been meaningful, distinctive, and extraordinary. The designation is reserved for ULI full members and trustees who are selected for the honor based on their contributions of time, resources, and philanthropic contributions to ULI and the ULI Foundation. The Global Nominations Committee also considers the individual’s standing and reputation in the real estate and land use industry.
