The ACT’s property industry is diverse and Canberra is a city with a bright future. Property directly accounts for more than 12 per cent of the ACT’s economic activity and our advocacy platform is designed to make Canberra the best place to invest in, manage and own property. Our plan for this year focuses on five key areas to help position the ACT for further growth and investment.
Through our work, events and programs, we deliver value for all our ACT members to uplift the industry and help unlock the potential of our nation’s capital.

Our priorities focus on five keys to unlocking the ACT’s potential: attracting investment and population growth; developing the housing we’ll need to keep Canberra liveable and improve affordability; urban renewal projects that deliver for our communities, business and our city; tax reform to promote investment; and infrastructure development that unlocks opportunity and drives growth.
We believe the ACT is the best place to invest in, manage and own property and our bold advocacy activity will make this a reality for more Australians.

The role of the Australia Capital Territory Division Council is to best represent the collective interests of ACT members. Members are nominated by industry peers and elected for a two-year term, with the ACT President also securing a position on the National Board. Division Councils are responsible for all local initiatives, and also leverage the Property Council’s campaigns to achieve state based results. The current Division Council representatives commenced their tenure in March 2023.
Committees meet every four to six weeks to discuss issues and projects relevant to their expertise and the focus of the Committee. Being selected as a member of a Property Council Committee gives you the opportunity to help shape the future and influence the organisation’s advocacy agenda. Members have the opportunity to contribute to important, focused industry discussions while building their professional networks and knowledge.
As part of our 40-40-20 commitment to gender equity, all our Committees comprise a minimum of 40 per cent female representatives. Committee members are appointed for a two-year term, with the current Committees commencing their tenure in February 2023.
