Our seventh and last meeting of the year is on Tuesday 22nd October 7:30 pm.
Andrew King Executive Officer of the New Zealand Property Investors Federation is coming to speak. Andrew is concluding his term in this position so this might in fact be the last time we get to hear him locally. Andrew has skilfully sailed our industry through many storms thrown at us by successive governments and court rulings. Nelson is his home town so he understands where we are coming from. The national NZPIF conference in Rotorua is being held over the weekend before this meeting so it will be a good chance to hear what went on there and what other investors around the country are up to. Our regular pre meeting meal at 6pm is still on. Email me to book your table. Just getting the vibes from fellow landlords and finding out how they are dealing with today’s market is what we are on about. Of course if your mouth is full of food you have no option but to stop and listen to what others are saying!
