ULI Netherlands Bob van der Zande headshotA Message from Bob van der Zande, ULI Netherlands Chair

ULI Netherlands makes it a priority to look at land use issues from a human perspective. Through our projects and events, we examine how to create cohesive communities where people prosper; share ways of attracting and retaining talent; and stimulate the reinvention of city life and urban growth with a sensible social, economic and functional diversity.

Another key objective for ULI Netherlands is to double our membership by 2017. To achieve this growth, we plan to intensify ULI Netherlands’ programme of events and workshops, secure high quality national and international speakers, and form partnerships with other industry organisations such as PROVADA, Expo Real, MIPIM, and  Watertorenberaad. We are confident that the depth of our programme and the broad international knowledge of the ULI global network will inspire people to become members.

We could not achieve these goals without members who play an active role in shaping our programmes and initiatives.  If you are interested in becoming more involved with ULI Netherlands, please e-mail netherlands@uli.org.
