Discussion Groups were originally designed to allow members to meet in an informal environment to share information, experiences and to promote the property profession.

They also act as a key point of contact between members and the API. In addition to providing CPD and networking, Discussion Groups are a crucial way to elevate key industry issues from grassroots members to API Committees, and to the Board and management.

We currently operate Discussion Groups in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. Contacts for each of these groups can be found below. If you are interested in establishing your own discussion group in any state or territory, please get in touch with your local Member Services Manager to see how we can help you.
