I am delighted to have been appointed as National Chair of the Investment Property Forum (IPF) to represent the fantastic members of the organisation. The IPF generates industry leading research, engages with other industry bodies, hosts informative webinars and seminars, organizes numerous events and provides excellent networking opportunities for its members. Having worked with IPF before, I hope to hit the ground running and make a positive impact from my first day as Chair, where one of my key priorities for the year ahead will be recruitment and trying to attract a new and diverse membership. I look forward to working with Sue Forster, Chief Executive, and the rest of the excellent, dedicated IPF team.
