Drawing a line under 2021
As we draw closer to the end of the year we know that many members will be looking forward to a a break with family and friends after a challenging 2021.
In this newsletter at the same time last year we were optimistic that the coming 12 months would be more settled and business would be returning to something like normal.
How wrong we were!
For those members who live and work in Auckland it has been a truly challenging year, but despite the uncertainty 2021, there is cause for positivity in 2022.
The new traffic light system is finally allowing retail, hospitality, and domestic tourism to open their doors to wider markets and we hope that continues.
The recovery in 2022 is not predicted to be as strong as after the first Covid lockdowns last year, never-the-less I'm sure we'll all welcome anything that lets us start resuming our routines. Fingers crossed.
We'd like to thank our respective Councils of the Institute of Property Advisors and Consultants and the Commercial Property Managers Institute.
As volunteers, they devote countless unpaid hours to advance our members' interests. The work the education sub-committee has been doing with the National Support Team has really started to pay dividends this year with increasingly strong CPD offerings.
As working professionals we draw a great deal of satisfaction from giving something back to our sector and we are always on the hunt for talented people to put their names forward for our Councils.
As the holiday break approaches we'd encourage you to take some time with your family and friends if you are able to. It has been a heck of a year and you've earned it.
On behalf of the IPAC and COMPRO Councils we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a prosperous and safe 2022.
