Urban Land Institute to Host Real Estate Summit in Phoenix May 18 - 20
The 2011 ULI Real Estate Summit is being held this year in Phoenix on May 18th to 20th. ACMA members are invited to participate. On Friday May 20th, after the morning general session keynote by Dr. Michael Crow, President of Arizona State University, ULI will be holding the inaugural ULI Adapting Cities for the Future Summit, addressing those issues that cities are facing as they launch into the new realities created by the economic downturn. This will be a whole new way of doing business and public/private partnerships will be more critical than ever before.

ULI has a great lineup of speakers including The Honorable Ralph Becker, Mayor, City of Salt Lake; The Honorable Phil Gordon, Mayor, City of Phoenix; and The Honorable Thomas Murphy, Senior Resident Fellow, ULI/Klingbeil Family Chair for Urban Development, ULI-the Urban Land Institute, and former Mayor, City of Pittsburgh; who will be discussing the challenges and opportunities facing cities and counties today. Topics will include the impact of economic development and job creation strategies on city revitalization, demographic changes and what they mean for cities, the funding gaps facing cities and how today's public/private partnerships can address them, how cities are tackling infrastructure issues from highways to schools, and the challenges facing cities as they witness the demise of the suburban ring.

ULI is pleased to have The Honorable Kay Granger, U.S. House of Representatives, and former Mayor, City of Fort Worth on hand to provide the federal perspective on these important issues and the role the federal government plays in the future of cities. The day is designed to be very interactive and one of the highlights will be a networking lunch and round table discussions on the issues facing cities - and the private sector - today. A more detailed agenda can be found on the meeting website:

ULI invites you to be part of this exciting dialogue and have established a public sector/non-profit admission price of $95 (including lunch).
