PROPERTY AUSTRALIA August 18, 2020

Nominations for the Property Council’s industry committees open on Wednesday 26 August. How can you make a contribution to your industry?

 

  Three key takeaways:

 

The Property Council’s committee members help to shape the future of the property and construction industry.

Committees contribute to policy and legislation, research, professional development and member events. Being part of a committee also strengthens participants’ industry networks and expertise.

Property Council chief executive officer Ken Morrison says more than 1,800 volunteers contribute to committees.

“Our members are critical in our important work,” Morrison says.

“A strong and sustainable property industry matters not only for our members and the 1.4 million Australians who depend on our industry for their livelihood. Our industry also creates, builds and manages the places which drive the economic and social vitality of our communities".

The Property Council is encouraging members to lodge company-wide nominations, which can be done through the online portal.

Morrison says the Property Council remains committed to its 40:40:20 campaign which sets a participation target of 40 per cent women, 40 per cent men and 20 per cent discretionary on all committees.

“We know that the best discussions, thinking and productivity occurs when there is diversity. We are keen to have as broad a field of nominations as possible from across our membership.”

Nominations for Property Council committees are for a two-year term commencing January 2021. Nominees will be advised of outcome mid-late December 2020.

Members with any questions can contact the Property Council’s membership team on 02 9033 1900 or email membership@propertycouncil.com.au
