Property Council membership is by company and is categorised into five groups, with a majority of members either defined as Core members (property owners, managers, developers and investors), or Associate members (associated property professionals and consultants).
A member company may decide to join in selected branches (e.g. Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Wellington or South Island), or choose to become a National Associate member. Corporate membership is by invitation only.
A core member is a company that invests (directly or indirectly) develops, finances, owns or manages property either as its core business or corporate activity. Core member categories are based on the combined market value of property owned/managed/developed/financed by the applying company.
An associate member is a company who is engaged in a profession or business associated with the property industry and does not fall into the core member category. The number of employees working in your selected branch of membership will determine your membership type.
The Corporate Members’ Group is the top tier of membership and is a national invitation-only leadership group. They play a central role influencing the sector and helping set the Property Council’s advocacy priorities. The Corporate Members’ Group define and defend Property Council values, that of being proactive, providing leadership, strength, communication and adding value to the property sector. They are viewed by peers as having considerable national scope and significance.
National associate members
National Associate Members are a national tier of membership that is available to companies who are engaged in a profession or business associated with the property industry as opposed to investors, owners, developers or managers. Benefits include national coverage and brand exposure as a national member across the property sector. They are viewed by peers as having either considerable national scope, or if locally based, considerable national significance.
Property Council Members' Laureate Programme honours those individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the organisation and the New Zealand property industry. Recipients receive honorary life membership, as directed by the National Council, with Laureates awarded at the Property Council Rider Levett Bucknall Property Industry Awards.
