Formation Of Special Interest Groups

Property Institute Announces The Formation Of Special Interest Groups

The New Zealand Property Institute is to set up a number of Special Interest Groups within its 3000 members of property professionals, NZPI CEO Conor English announced today.

Mr English said, "With a broad membership of 3000 and growing, it is important that we get the benefits of having a broader cross sector of professionals, but we also need to focus on the specialist professional needs of our membership. With the formation of our Special Interest Groups our members can benefit from having a broader based Institute whilst still gaining access to more specialist services and events.

"This is a further step in the Institutes rapid evolution as we move to a more responsive solutions and value based organisation.

"This move refines our internal structure to better serve our members. Along with our international links to Singapore, Canada, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom, our affiliation to the International Facilities Management Association based in the US, and our recently signed agreement with the Australian Property Institute, we are now progressing along the "think global act local" strategic path.

"These groups will be progressively set up over the next few months. Their main outputs will be educational and networking events, specialised information for the Institute's website www.property.org.nz , and anything else the Project Teams want to do.

The Special Interest Groups identified so far include: Corporate Real Estate & Facilities Management, Rural, Valuers, Plant & Machinery Valuers, Commercial & Industrial, Corporate Advisors & Consultants, Property Developers, Project & Construction Managers, Legal Practitioners, Data Users, Small Business, Women in Property and Youth in Property

"The Special Interest Groups will be run by Project Teams, rather than committees, who will be non-democratically selected and very much output focused. The idea is to enable the Project Teams to be as flexible as possible, without large administrative costs, and to enable busy and senior people to contribute as they can on a project-by-project basis.

"I look forward to working with others to progress this next exciting phase of the Institute development," Mr English concluded.
