2017/18 CEO REPORT


The 2017/18 financial year was actionpacked for UDIA Victoria as we developed a strategic advocacy-led policy and research program, delivered a solid program of diverse content-rich events, and hosted the UDIA National Congress in Melbourne.

Policy and Advocacy

We continue to lead the charge on policy reform and this year, built upon past successes to drive meaningful change. We know that the work we do increases the opportunity for Victorians to own or rent their own homes, to live in highly liveable communities, and to ensure the state’s economic future is strong and prosperous.

New Frontiers

With the launch of several new and exciting activities, including the UDIA Global Unit, Property Development Program, Leadership Program, and our Urban IQ research and video initiative, UDIA is focused on delivering real value to its membership.

Industry Intelligence

We have added to UDIA Victoria’s membership service offering, investing in a wide range of research initiatives and distributing regular industry intelligence to ensure our members consistently benefit from up-to-date market information and business-building insights. A major plank of our role in building the capacity of the broader industry, has been our investment in and implementation of UDIA Victoria’s professional development offering. With a clear strategy to grow this offering in partnership with Swinburne University and others, we are focused on building skills and capabilities within our industry and ensuring the future of the sector is strong.


In March 2018, UDIA Victoria hosted over 630 global, domestic and local experts as they gathered in Melbourne to ‘See the Now’ at the 2018 UDIA National Congress. The landmark event was a real highlight of the year for the UDIA Victoria team. With innovation, new technology and leadingedge insights making up the core experience, we delivered dynamic presentations, site tours, networking functions and a range of exciting experiences for delegates. As it does every year, the 2018 National Congress provided a myriad of exciting opportunities for industry to network, learn and tap into new ways of seeing and thinking.


The past 12 months has seen growth in new and diverse categories within the EnviroDevelopment (ED) program. The ED Board and ED Professionals, together with UDIA members and staff have collectively encouraged the industry to take up innovation, sustainability and creativity across their projects, which has been demonstrated through the high number of new and re-certified ED projects seen in 2017/18.

I thank everyone who has contributed to our success throughout 2017/18, especially the UDIA’s Victorian President Damien Tangey, our Executive Committee, Board, committee members, partners, sponsors and the dedicated UDIA team.

Finally, thank you to our members for your ongoing support and engagement. We look forward to continuing our important work on your behalf.

Danni Hunter,
Chief Executive Officer
Urban Development Institute of Australia (Victoria)
