AUSTRALIAN CHINESE BUILDING ASSOCIATION  
CONSTITUTION


1. PREAMBLE 
The property industry in Australia is vital to the wealth and health of the Australian economy.  Australian born Chinese and ex-patriots of Chinese people in 2014 are major drivers and participants in the property industry.  It is envisaged by commentators that the success of Australian property industry works in parallel with the Australian Chinese community.
 
Chinese and other Asians are participating heavily in the property industry.  The new property industry has five major industry groups:-
 
·      Property Investment Developers;
·      Licensed Builders and Tradesmen
·      Building Suppliers
·      Licensed Real Estate Agents
·      Legal Advice
 
The Australian Chinese Building Association has been formed to facilitate the objectives of these three groups and to provide a public voice equivalent to the Chinese influence in Australian property society.
