Young Leaders

Young Leaders


One of our key initiatives for this year is to establish the Young Leaders programme. In order to ensure the continued success and long term growth of our chapter, it’s critical that we continue to attract new and younger members.

Young Leaders are members who are aged up to 35 years old and they, along with other special membership categories like Tertiary Students and Academics, are eligible for discounted membership fees.

We want to expand the demographic we serve and, in the future, provide knowledge, networking and events that will be relevant to Young Leaders, as well as meeting the needs of our current CoreNet community.

Paul Kennerley led the core of the Young Leaders committee, assisted by Nigel Rye, Andrea Hamilton, Tony Moore, Bob Bull and Andrew Tu’inukuafe as required.

What we’re doing:

1.         Corenet and Young Leaders (YL) membership has been introduced to eligible industry contacts predominantly in Auckland and Wellington initially through a survey and then an evening drinks function in those two cities. 

2.         A mentoring scheme and a shared CRE/ Property Industry shared calendar of events have been targeted as key offerings/ benefits to YL members. 

3.         A one page summary has been written by Matt to introduce the YL Mentoring scheme to both mentors and mentees and he has also set up a central database of volunteer Mentors which is starting to be populated (19 mentors and counting). This summary is to be circulated to  members and contacts to increase the number of potential mentors and to start matching them with mentees.

4.         Weekly conference calls have been set up to regularly catch up and to get this initiative underway.
