On behalf of CoreNet Global, the world’s premier organisation serving almost 9,000 members around the world, I wish to congratulate and applaud the volunteer leaders of your local chapters in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney. I thank them for their forward-thinking, collaborative leadership and service and join with them in making an important announcement to you regarding our chapter presence and structure in Australia.
Our three Australian chapters will combine to form one national chapter beginning 1 January 2015. This comes about thanks to a strong desire on the part of your local chapter leaders to combine resources, strengthen local content and networking offerings and elevate the voice and profile of the association – and the corporate real estate profession – across Australia.
This change is not the result of a directive from CoreNet Global but rather a grassroots effort to partner and further advance the mission and vision of the organisation. This strategic chapter decision will better position the association to meet and exceed our members’ expectations with innovative programs and professional development opportunities. It also enables us to build a stronger bridge between local and national initiatives and our global platform and resources. What doesn’t change is the commitment to our value proposition and a strong desire to service the unique, local needs of our diverse membership.
The specific details, structure and implementation of this new national plan will be communicated to you in due course by your local chapter leaders. Again, I join with them in celebrating this important decision and encourage you to reach out to them should you have any questions.
