the state of today’s energy en- vironment, and the importance of giving back to the commu- nity. On Thursday, May 14, Baker and Hines will discuss leadership: Baker will share lessons learned from serving in senior government positions under three U.S. presidents; and Hines will share lessons learned during the 57 years he has led his international investment, development, and management company. Another highlight of the meeting will be a town hall session, moderated by former U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Sec- retary Henry Cisneros , which will explore findings from two new ULI surveys -- Generation Y and Housing and America in 2015 – both follow-ups to previous ULI reports. Cisne- ros will lead a discussion that will include the timely topic of how the surge of Millennials entering the housing and jobs markets will change urban development. In addition to these three main sessions, the meeting will include an emphasis on com- munities that, like Houston, have built on their strengths in the post-recession years to be economically prosperous, environmentally sound and highly livable. Twelve mobile tours are planned to provide

attendees with behind-the- scenes access to Houston’s most innovative developments. “Houston’s economic diversity, downtown neighborhood revi- talization, light rail, bikeway and green space additions are all contributing to the city’s success in positioning itself as a vibrant place to live and work,” said ULI Global Chief Execu- tive Officer Patrick Phillips . “We are excited to bring ULI to this great city, and we are anticipating a highly success- ful meeting, in terms of both networking and knowledge- sharing opportunities.” Chairing the Host Commit- tee for ULI’s Spring Meeting are ULI trustee and former ULI Houston Chairman Jona- than Brinsden , chief ex- ecutive officer of Midway ; and ULI Trustee Thomas Owens , senior managing director and chief risk officer for Hines. ULI’s major meetings, in- cluding the Spring Meeting, are made possible each year by the generous support of spon- sors. Hines is the Icon sponsor for the 2015 Spring Meeting, and other major sponsors in- clude Colliers Internation- al , Cushman & Wakefield , OliverMcMillan , ProLogis , Camden Property Trust , EY , and Lutron . Sponsorship opportunities for the meeting are still available. n
