May 01, 2020

Parsons Behle & Latimer (Parsons) associate Christina A. Hardesty has been elected chairperson of the Young Leaders Group of the Idaho chapter of Urban Land Institute (ULI), a cross-disciplinary real estate and land use organization that, according to its website, sets standards of excellence in development practice through its members’ shared expertise. The Young Leaders Group is comprised of real estate professionals who are 35 years of age and younger.  

Hardesty is a member of Parsons’ real estate, banking and finance, and litigation practice groups. She initially joined ULI because of the immense resources the organization offers to real estate professionals in the areas of development, construction, real estate and real estate law.

For the past two years, Hardesty has served on the Young Leaders Group committee and ULI Idaho’s programming committee and has worked to promote ULI networking events including a CEO Series featuring guest CEO speakers, Q&A Learning Sessions and organizing tours of new developments in the Boise area.

Hardesty says, “The Young Leaders Group has seen excellent growth in the last few years. My goals as chairperson will be to continue the great work we achieved to date while continuing to expand our membership. I am looking forward to working with the other YLG committee members over the next two years to continue to expand networking, educational and mentoring opportunities for young Idaho real estate leaders,” says Hardesty.

Hardesty says her immediate focus as chairperson is to help young leaders navigate the new economic reality caused by COVID-19.
