ULI's Advisory Services Program (ASP) is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
Established in 1947, the program has paired the brightest minds in real estate with the most challenging problems facing our cities. More than 700 panels have been delivered globally.
Members continue to volunteer their skills, time, and energy to create a more authentic blueprint for change, identify communities facing urban development and land use challenges, and support panels through philanthropic giving.
In Asia Pacific, we are building our capacity and resources to focus on Advisory Services Program. It’s a time-tested successful initiative that delivers direct impact in the communities where we are.
