UDIA exists for its members. We were built by our members and continue to grow as a result. For sixty years, UDIA has played a pivotal role in Australia’s urban development landscape through the shaping of policy reform and ensuring land development is seen as a major economic driver.
UDIA NSW provides the perfect environment from which to build life-long business relationships. We offer extensive year-round events and premium networking functions to allow members, new and established, to connect and keep abreast of trending and emerging industry issues. We also provide a wide range of professional development opportunities – such as overseas study tours and relevant, practical training courses – to support the personal and professional growth of our members.
Twelve dedicated committees and business advisory groups proactively and constructively work to influence all levels of government on key economic, social and environmental issues that affect urban development in NSW.
Businesses that are aligned with UDIA NSW enjoy the success that comes with being affiliated with a credible, powerful and respected industry body. Membership also allows you to make a real and effective contribution to public policy debate and policy formation.
