Western Australia

Home Our Divisions Western Australia

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.

Our priorities for Western Australia centre around stimulating investment and economic activity, promoting population growth, ensuring diversity and choice of quality housing for Western Australians, and the continual development of Perth as a thriving global city.

We’re calling for a planning and urban governance system that supports exemplar place-making, infrastructure prioritisation and investment to facilitate development at the right time and in the right places, along with a reform of the state tax system to stimulate inbound investment.

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.

500 Women in Property

500 Women in Property helps our members promote female talent and empower them to advance in the workforce. The program aims to accelerate more women into leadership positions in the property industry through sponsorship of high-potential talent. Men and women can get involved as sponsors, and women as participants.

Champions of Change

The Champions of Change Coalition is a globally recognised strategy for advancing gender equality and building respectful, inclusive workplaces. We established the Champions of Change Property Group in 2015 to advance this cause in the sector, and today the group involves leaders who oversee more than 25,000 employees.

Girls in Property

Girls in Property is a program that informs high school students of the various career paths available across the property industry. It aims to generate a more diverse pipeline of talent by encouraging more women into the sector. Students gain insights into the industry and hear from leaders about what a career in property looks like.

We are deeply grateful to our Partners for their contributions. These partnerships enable us to deliver quality work and experiences for our members, which in turn benefits the entire Western Australian property industry.
