2016/17 CEO REPORT


In the 2016/17 financial year UDIA Victoria embarked on many big, exciting projects and made solid headway across all areas of our Advocacy Agenda. 

While maintaining our position as the peak industry body for the development industry, we have focused on delivering exceptional member services and explored new frontiers to ensure our members are equipped to thrive within changing business conditions.

Policy and Advocacy

UDIA has proven itself to be a strong and consistent voice for the industry with regular communications with government, regulators, media, industry and the Victorian community. We have presented a series of evidence-based solutions to policy-makers and have made
significant progress across many of the policy priorities identified in our 2016/17 Advocacy Agenda.

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

UDIA has distributed regular market intelligence and research over the past 12 months, offering members access to the data, information and commentary they need to make smart, educated business decisions.


We delivered over 40 industry events throughout the 2016/17 financial year, providing members with a diverse mix of breakfasts, lunches, forums, briefings and practical learning sessions which offer invaluable networking opportunities in both educational and social settings.


Our nationally recognised EnviroDevelopment program certified 11 Victorian projects throughout the financial year; recognising these developments as market-leading in areas of innovation and excellence in sustainability.

I thank everyone who has contributed to our success throughout 2016/17, 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 Addison,
Chief Executive Officer
Urban Development Institute of Australia (Victoria)
