Emergent Leadership Awards
The Emergent Leadership Awards is a celebration of our local real estate industry! The awards acknowledge and highlight the most outstanding local leaders whose contributions to their company and ULI make it clear that they lead by example.
The ELA’s are proud to recognize motivated, dedicated, and innovative emerging real estate professionals, who have demonstrated dedication to bettering themselves and their industry; companies that actively encourage the growth and development of its young professional staff; and Distinguished Mentors in honor of the considerable dedication of senior real estate professionals in our region who consistently and enthusiastically serve as effective mentors to our District Council’s Young Leaders.
