Committees

UDI Alberta is the recognized voice of the land development industry, representing members in provincial matters across Alberta.  Our robust committee structure supports those goals and KPIs set out in the UDI Alberta Strategic Plan.

All committee activity and members work to ensure the success of UDI Alberta’s two strategic pillars:

1.    Government Advocacy

Continuously work with government and other stakeholders to ensure that policy and legislation foster investment, choice, growth, and commitment to building communities.

2.    Communication, Engagement and Education of Members and Stakeholders

Effectively communicate and engage with members, Chapter boards and stakeholders.
Act as an education resource.
