Following several months of transition planning, the new Central Regional Committee has now been officially formed and approved by Property Council’s National Board.
The Committee, which is a merger of the Bay of Plenty and Waikato branches, will represent our members in the wider region.
The Committee’s core purpose is to:
- Provide input into and representation for local advocacy issues
- Provide input into event topics
- Drive nominations for the Regional Property People Awards
- Assist with key communication to members
- Assist in identifying and converting potential members
- Promote Property Council New Zealand
Central Committee Members
As part of the transition, the Committee was tasked with creating a Charter, redefining their purpose and setting out a basic framework of how they will operate.
Key points of the Charter include:
- The Central Committee shall be comprised as follows:
- 40% of seats available to the Waikato Region
- 40% of seats available to the Bay of Plenty Region
- 20% of seats available to Other (can be either Waikato or Bay of Plenty Members)
- The intention is for the Central Committee to have a good balance of skills with a mix of developers and property professional members; encourage diversity with an aspiration to have iwi representation and mix of male and female representatives.
- A Central Regional Events Committee has been established to drive the local events programme.
- The Central Regional Committee meets on a six-weekly basis at alternate locations of Hamilton and Tauranga, with the option to attend virtually if unable to attend in person.
We wish to thank all those who have chosen to volunteer for the Central Committee and pay tribute to those departing members who have gifted their significant expertise over many years.
