APIA Presentation Guidelines

APIA is a voluntary association which has a particular focus on general education relating to property investment. As such APIA allows a variety of persons to provide content to members for this purpose (“Presenter”). However, it is impractical for APIA to directly manage each Presenter. Accordingly, while APIA takes some steps to ensure the suitability of all Presenters and content it largely relies on Presenters meeting reasonable and professional standards of conduct.

Status of Presentation Guidelines
  1. All Presenters who provide content, whether by way of blog, article, webinar, seminar, advertising, pamphlet, social media update, video or any other content whatsoever (“Content”), are required to comply with these Presentation Guidelines.
  2. Where these Presentation Guidelines conflict with any other agreement a Presenter has with APIA including APIA’s website terms and conditions and APIA’s Constitution then that agreement will take precedence to the extent of any conflict.
  3. Where the context shall require, a reference to the Presenter includes any associated party of the Presenter.
  4. APIA may update these Presentation Guidelines from time to time and those updated Presentation Guidelines will apply to each Presenter. Each Presenter is required to be familiar with the Presentation Guidelines applying at the relevant time.
Presentation Conduct
  1. Each Presenter will act prudently, competently and in good faith in providing Content and will take all practical steps to avoid presenting inaccurate or misleading information.
  2. Each Presenter will interact with attendees courteously, will endeavour not to cause embarrassment and will not make disparaging remarks about any person.
  3. No Presenter will include in their Content any offensive, defamatory, indecent, misleading or objectionable material.
  4. APIA may require a Presenter to provide Content for review in advance on notice. APIA may in its sole discretion and at any time withdraw or prevent the Presenter from providing any Content or future Content if APIA believes that the Presenter has or may make inappropriate Content available.
  5. The Presenter agrees to indemnify APIA from all actions, claims, costs, losses, damages, liabilities or demands suffered or incurred by APIA arising out of or in connection with any failure to comply with these Presentation Guidelines or any other obligation of the Presenter.
  6. Each Presenter will ensure that any intellectual property used in any Content is owned or lawfully licensed to them for such purpose.
  7. Unless the Presenter has a right to provide paid promotional content under separate agreement with APIA, the Presenter will not directly advertise or promote their business provided however Presenters will be able to provide basic details of their role and the name and details of such business.
  8. No Presenter will endeavour to entice any person to purchase any particular property or service unless the Presenter is a sponsor of APIA and the Presentation is paid promotional content authorised by separate agreement with APIA.
  9. Each Presenter will endeavour to stay within the time allotted for their Presentation by APIA.
  10. Each Presenter will comply with any other reasonable direction of APIA.
  11. Each Presenter will make any particular technical requirements known to APIA within a reasonable timeframe and will liaise with APIA constructively to meet those requirements where possible.
  12. Presenters will fully disclose any conflicts of interest that they may have.
  13. Presenters will provide APIA’s standard Event and/or Webinar disclaimer (as the case may be), in all Content provided to APIA and shall comply with any particular directions APIA may provide in relation to the same.
  14. No Presenter will carry out, promote or encourage unlawful activity or behaviour of any kind that may bring APIA and its members into disrepute.

Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
