AUSTRALIAN Property Institute CEO Amelia Hodge has urged members to cast their vote at this year’s election and help shape the future of the Institute.

Hodge said it is important that members vote.

“Three years ago, we established the API Ltd as a truly national organisation that serves you, our members. Since that time we have continued to lead an intense period of restructure and review to ensure robustness around internal systems, increased member value and member engagement.

The vacant Independent Director was filled in May this year, with The Honourable Bruce Billson and now we again go to the polls with four candidates for three elected member vacancies.

“The challenge you face – the challenge we face today – is who to choose to move the API forward,” Hodge continued.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce that elections for new directors for the API Board have commenced and CorpVote is once again managing the independent voting process on our behalf. Votes close at midnight on July 28th.

“I recommend that you look at our candidates, consider their backgrounds, their history, their involvement with the API and their professional standing. Also consider their capacity and ability to work on your board on your behalf to make prudent decisions about the future of the API as we go forward.

“Remember, your vote is important because it’s your API!” Hodge concluded.

Australian Property Journal interviewed the candidates and asked each of them why members should vote for them. The four candidates are below, click on their names to read their candidacy profile.

The Australian Property Institute (API) Board Elections is open until 23:59 AEST on Sunday 28 July 2018.

The API has partnered with CorpVote to provide an online voting service.  All eligible voting Members will receive emails from CorpVote with details of how-to login and vote.
