About us

Organisational OVERVIEW

  • The Institute is a not-for-profit incorporated organisation
  • The Institute is the largest of five state organisations affiliated with the national body, the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA)
  • At the national level, UDIA is governed by a National Council made up of eleven councillors elected annually from the state bodies
  • The Institute is governed by a Board of Directors, elected annually
  • The Board of Directors and the Institute are supported by a network of committees made up of volunteers from our membership. There are three broad roles of the committees:

- to provide expert advice on organisational initiatives (e.g. Awards for Excellence, Membership, Annual Developers Conference, Events and Sponsorship)

- to guide policy issues (e.g. Planning and Environment Committee, Economic Development, Infrastructure and Taxation Committee, Seniors Living Committee)

- to guide local issues (each of the 11 regional branches has its own management committee to provide guidance on local planning matters).
