NZATEAP Building Blocks to 2020

NZATEAP President, Jacob Waitere, was proud to share the Associations Strategic plan with members in the month of August.

"This strategic plan sets a clear pathway for the future of the Association. It builds on the successful history of the Association and maximises the many poisitive opportunities for the future" says Jacob.

We encourage all members to read the Strategic plan and think about how they can contribute to the development of their Association.


The Executive committee of NZATEAP have been working over the year to finalise values for the Association. These values represent what is important for the Association to deliver to it's members but also what our members value in the profession.

Five new values for NZATEAP are being promoted on our Facebook progressivly with a Value a day starting on the 2nd of August. Our first value launched is EDUCATION.

We are excited to announce ACUHO-I and NZATEAP have renewed their relationship in Sydney in April 2016. President Jacob and ACUHO-i President Allan, together with Globalisation Director Colin, have some exciting international projects in the pipeline to bring a unique kiwi flare to student accommodation. This relationship will result in benefits over a wide range of international resources ACUHO-I offer for NZ members.

This further demonstrates that NZATEAP is a globally thinking, locally acting association.
