The REINZ Annual Conference and AGM are being held on 18th and 19th September in Rotorua – registrations for the REINZ Conference close on 10 September.
In view of last week’s passing of the Real Estate Agents Bill by the government and the possible consequential changes that will result from the new Act, the REINZ Annual General Meeting, Conferences and associated social events will be an opportunity for some valuable dialogue between industry members on both a formal and informal basis.
The new Act is going to have a profound impact on the Real Estate industry and REINZ as the representative body. The Act comes into effect 14 months after Royal assent to allow enough time for the establishment of the new Real Estate Agents Authority and for the industry to supposedly come up to speed with the reforms.
Staying informed and participating in these changes is important to all salespeople, being involved at an early stage means balanced representation is provided. We are all individuals and as such are entitled to our own point of view, diverse representation from within the industry is positive and will enable the industry to move forward and embrace the coming challenges and changes.
Remain apathetic now, don’t complain later.
