This keynote session connects the past, present and future leadership of the Auckland Property Investors' Association Incorporated to help investors develop a deeper understanding of property investment in terms of the opportunities, hurdles and the best way forward.

Property investing is in a constant state of flux. Its evolving relationships with social norms, government regulations and the economics of the time will always shift the parameters within which investors define success.

This session features three investors from the APIA leadership team: past president Andrew Bruce, current president Kristin Sutherland and new board member Monique Oosterbaan. Though each has a vastly different market experience from one another, all three shares the same goal of creating an environment for everyday property investors to thrive.

Through conversation and storytelling, we will explore the past, set the scene for today's issues and examine viable ways forward for property investors. We will discuss enduring and of-the-moment challenges and opportunities of property investment, incorporate different perspectives, share practical solutions and provide the energy and inspiration that will see you through the next 10 years of property investing. Specifically, all three speakers will be sharing their views on the recent tax law change announcement as well as strategy adjustments they will be making to accommodate these new limitations. 

Specifically, each speaker will share their respective stories of how they became investors, their biggest challenge + accomplishment and their outlook of the sector. As a group, they will also discuss the role they see the APIA plays in the market and our national dialogue.

Also at this session: Digest of new tax rules for property investors
Amanda Watt of Shortland Chartered Accountant will be giving a high-level overview of new tax laws announced on 23rd March and how these rules will impact property investor, homeowners and bach owners. This is a preview of her more in-depth presentation to APIA members scheduled for 15th April. 
Also at this meeting: Special General Meeting

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
