CEO REPORT 2017/18


The 2017/18 financial year was action-packed 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.

UDIA Victoria’s position as the peak industry body for the development industry is built on the strength of the urban development industry. Our job is to foster purposeful partnerships and facilitate solution-based advocacy outcomes on behalf of the sector, to support Victoria’s economic and social evolution into the future. We work hard every year to deliver for the industry and for the broader Victorian community.

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.

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 leading-edge 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. 

UDIA Victoria is an influential voice for the industry both publicly and privately, through consistent engagement with government, media, industry stakeholders and the broader community. We collaborate and present evidence-based advice, solutions and submissions to policy- makers and in FY2018, we achieved a raft of advocacy wins on behalf of our membership across a wide range of industry issues.  

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. 

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

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