Committees

The Property Council's agenda in Tasmania is guided by more than five member committees comprising 60 industry volunteers.

Our commitment to diversity

Being a member of a Property Council Committee helps you make an important contribution to the industry as well as build your professional network, market knowledge and profile. In 2016, we have set a participation target of 40% women, 40% men and 20% discretionary because we know the best discussions, thinking and productivity occurs when there is diversity.
