The Institute was founded to pave the way for the creation of better communities.

We were formed by the development industry as its peak body, putting the interests of property developers at the centre of everything we do.

When you join you’re part of the State’s largest network of community creators. You get informed through professional development and research and have access to exclusive event networking opportunities to help you get ahead.
