We advocate for policies that drive job creation, deliver prosperity and create thriving communities. Property is more than physical buildings – it underpins the vibrancy of communities, it’s central to the operation of logistics and supply networks, and it creates places for Western Australians to live their best lives. As an industry we are working with government to drive tax reform to stimulate investment in the West.
Through our strong advocacy, events and programs, we deliver value for all our Western Australian members by uplifting the industry, supporting the people who work in it, and showcasing the social and economic impact they deliver every day.

The role of the Western Australian Division Council is to best represent the collective interests of Western Australian members. Members are nominated by industry peers and elected for a two-year term, with the Western Australian 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.

The Champions of Change Coalition is a globally recognised strategy for advancing gender equality and building respectful, inclusive workplaces.

Girls in Property
Girls in Property is a program that informs high school students of the various career paths available across the property industry.
