The Property Council of Australia offers two types of memberships: Core and Associate.

Core membership is for companies that invest, develop, finance own or manage property either as its core business. The cost of membership is variable based on the market value of the property in each state. Benefits are available for all employees in the state the membership is held.

Associate membership is for those companies engaged in a profession or business associated with the property industry, such as planners and lawyers. The cost of membership depends on the total number of employees in the state of the membership applied.  Benefits are available for all employees in the state the membership is held.

The Property Council of Australia provides corporate memberships for small companies, which is suitable for sole traders with a registered ABN.

The Property Council of Australia membership subscription runs in line with the financial year (1 July to June 30).

Membership benefits are available once your invoice has been paid.

As our membership is state-based, you can only receive member benefits in the state that you hold membership. Your state-based membership includes discounted rates for our Academy courses, research products as well as our national events such as Property Congress and the Retirement Living Summit.

If you have a national presence as an associate member, we recommend you take out membership in the states where you have a prescence. Speak to our team about tailoring a package for your organisation.
