Change Is In The Air For Our National Short Term And Holiday Rental Industry Association

Australian Short Term and Holiday Rental Industry Association

Our national Association’s AGM is coming up on 27 June 2018 in Sydney, NSW. We’ll be calling for Board nominations from our short-term and holiday rental operator members so if you are a mover and shaker, have something to contribute and have been thinking about becoming a member – don’t delay. Join Now!

Help set our Priorities and Services for the year ahead.

At the AGM we’ll be seeking to commit to our key priorities in working for our industry in the year and the services we provide you. Towards that, we’ve prepared a two-minute questionnaire. Please take a moment to let us know what’s important to you.

 Help us, help you: short 2-minute questionnaire 

Across Australia state and local governments are reviewing the regulation for our short-term and holiday rental sector. While we offer other benefits to members, your support allows us to advocate for fair industry regulation to ensure operational certainty and long-term sustainability.

To better represent your interests, we have also drafted changes to our Consitution to ensure we are a strong independent grassroots operators industry association going forward.

A new Owners class. This new class is to allow owners, who do not manage (who have a representative manager), to support the HRIA and our advocacy work.

Ensuring only managers, of Australian short-term and holiday rentals, will qualify for a director seat on the national Board so that grassroots operators can make the big decisions going forward.

We hope to gain the support of members for the following changes by Special Motion vote on or before 27 June 2018 (in person, postal and our new online voting options);

We continue to welcome the support from industry Suppliers and we will be introducing a Supplier Directory and a Sponsorship Prospectus in the second half of 2018. This will present opportunities for our Supplier members to sponsor or partner with us in delivering additional member benefits such as industry events, for example.

Please make contact with us if you have any queries.

  

Here’s our HRIA Flyer & Questionnaire

Welcome to the Holiday Rental Industry Association!

Holiday Rentals/ Short Term Residential Accommodation (STRA) have been delivering memorable visitor experiences in Australia for over 140 years and deliver real benefits to economy, local communities and tourism. By joining the Holiday Rental Industry Association (HRIA) you will be supporting a national network of industry professionals to undertake vital research, engage and shape policy in regards to industry regulation and sustainability.

We’ll forward a seasonal electronic newsletter which will contain industry updates as well as information on the new Code of Conduct and how this can be used as a tool to improve or enhance your management systems.

Our team of Board volunteers will assist you if you wish to form local stakeholder groups. We’ll also screen industry inquiries and register guest complaints to consider through our advocacy work.

The sharing economy is a hot topic in Australia, and globally, and your support of the Holiday Rental Industry Association is vital right now. We invite owners, property managers, distributors and suppliers to join the HRIA.
