The Society`s Objectives 

To improve the standing and promote the expertise of the property researcher;

To foster and maintain high standards of ability and practice;

To support and further the interests of the property research community;

To provide a forum for the discussion of matters of interest to property researchers.

These objectives are achieved through a variety of activities including a stimulating programme of seminars, lectures, field trips, discussions and social events throughout the year. The Society regularly works with other organisations to deliver seminars and conferences that are likely to appeal to the membership (eg the Real World Conference with IPD and the UK and European Market Outlook seminars with the IPF.  In addition, the Society is pro-active in establishing working parties to investigate key issues within the property industry. Notable successes include its reports on Property Indices, Data Sources and Salaries.

A newsletter provides members with up-to-date news and views on events affecting the property research community. The Society also publishes ad hoc publications on specific issues, such as the Society`s biennial Survey of Salaries and Benefits. The Society`s Membership Directory is widely regarded as the Who`s Who of the property research profession.  With a membership of over 500, the Society provides many opportunities for interaction with people engaged not only in property research, but acress the entire property industry.

The Society often serves as a catalyst in promoting industry-wide debates, and is active in encouraging links with related bodies.
