A Regional Product Council (RPC) provides a multi-disciplinary forum for information exchange and the sharing of best practices among mid- and senior-level members who work in a particular industry sector. Members will have the chance to interact with like-minded professionals in the ULI East Central Region (ULI District Councils in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Indiana, Michigan and Pittsburgh).
The ULI East Central Regional Product Council 3.0 will focus on Public/Private Partnerships in Mixed-Use Development. The urban core has become an increasingly attractive location of choice in each of the ULI East Central Region District Council areas. RPC discussions will center on how current demographic shifts and preferences for an urban, walkable environment will affect development patterns. These patterns include infill development, adaptive use of historic and obsolete buildings, and creative urban housing, retail and mixed-use developments.
Expectations of Participants
Open, honest exchange of specific information and experience: Members participate openly and honestly, sharing specific, detailed information and experience from their real estate practice.
Confidentiality: Confidentiality is the foundation for open and honest sharing of detailed information and experience.
No self-promotion: Presentations and discussions are aimed at delivering real take-home value.
Recruit the best and the brightest: Innovative leaders, both ULI members and nonmembers, are invited to participate as guests. Members identify ways to continually add value to the conversation and make an impact in the community.
Active participation and contribution: Because each RPC member will be chosen based on his or her unique background and experience, members are expected to be active participants and contributors in all RPC discussions.
Applications for RPC 3.0 from Cincinnati are closed. Fourteen individuals from Cincinnati are currently included in RPC 3.0. There are some District Councils in the East Central Regional Product Council with availability.
Regional Product Councils are modeled after the National Product Council Program of ULI designed for ULI members in the ULI East Central Region (ULI District Councils in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Indiana, Michigan and Pittsburgh).

According to ULI Cincinnati Chair, Chris Dobrozsi, “All of our markets are experiencing growth in urban infill, mixed-use development, and this form of growth is consistent with ULI’s mission. We are excited about the opportunity to see new projects and share experiences.”
The RPC plans semi-annual summits in the spring and fall of each program year with virtual sessions between as needed.
In 2023, the group will meet in Columbus and Detroit, in 2024 the group will meet in Cincinnati and Indianapolis and in 2025 the group will meet in Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
