Housing Intensification – Consequences for Unit Titles
Changes to the Resource Management Act 1991 and the National Policy Statement on Urban Development will enable greater levels of residential intensification in urban areas in all main centres in NZ.

Case Law Update and Review
New case law on unit title issues continues to emerge at pace. This session will provide an overview of key recent cases and what they mean in practice.
Thomas Gibbons, Principal, Thomas Gibbons Law

Wellness, Resilience and Bullying: Tips for Survival in Unpredictable Times
The Times They Are A-Changin’. The Bob Dylan song is timeless and is as relevant today as was in 1964. The pandemic has created its own revolution of change, some for good. However, the impact of the uncertainty and fear has taken on a toll on our own and our clients’ mental health. This session will discuss how to survive and thrive in today’s crazy world.

Strengthening and Clarifying Governance – Committees and the New Governance Regime
The Amendment Act has clarified some governance questions and provided a Code of Conduct for Committee Members in making decisions for the Body Corporate under Delegation. Conflicts of Interest are now specifically defined. This should see governance improved and is not so heavy-handed as to deter owners from being elected to Committees.
Joanna Pidgeon, Director, Pidgeon Judd

Unit Titles Amendment Act – What Body Corporate Managers Need to Know
The changes ahead have a substantial impact on Body Corporate Managers, from their own regulation, to their business operations, to supporting Bodies Corporate and Committees through new governance regimes. This session will have Managers well prepared for the future.
