PIPA: Looking to 2017

As 2016 draws to a close, PIPA would like to thank all of our members for their continued support this year.

It's been a successful year for the association with our number of PIPA members reaching 173 – up more than 10 per cent on last year.

We also had 240 students in the 15/16 financial year, which was an increase of more than 20 per cent on the previous year. The number of QPIAs has also increased by more than 10 per cent over the past year.

Next year is promising to be even more successful for the association with a number of events in the pipeline.

First up, PIPA will again have a presence at the 2017 Property Buyer Expo in Melbourne in late February. We will also be represented at the Sydney event later in the year in October, which makes a welcome return to the CBD.

Planning is well under way for more PIPA events and member benefits throughout the year, including market review webinars and networking opportunities.

With the property market likely to offer up some less-than-ideal results for investors in the off-the-plan sector, as well as the continued debate around negative gearing, PIPA will also step up our lobbying efforts in 2017.

We will also be launching a bimonthly PIPA e-magazine in the first few months of the year, which will include market and legislation updates, member profiles, the latest property data and insights as well as everything you need to know about your association.

Please note, the PIPA office will be closed from Friday 23 December 2016 and will reopen on Monday 9 January 2017.

We wish you all a Happy Christmas and a joyous New Year!
