    The SAA Executive Committee met in Adelaide on Monday.

    The board had a very busy and productive day progressing to the next step to implementation of the National Property Accreditation Scheme (NPAS), due to be released in early 2020.

    Other items of business included further enhancement of the look and functionality of the association’s website and membership management system, and a conference call and detailed review of the draft prescribed student accommodation tenancy agreement.

    The board also approved new member applications from Dwell Student Living and Urbis. Welcome aboard!

    Study Adelaide is the first Australian International Education Stakeholder to demonstrate its commitment to actively promoting Student Accommodation Association members to key international markets.

    Study Adelaide have extended an invitation to SAA members, across all categories of student accommodation, to express interest in registering to participant and showcase their offerings at series of pre-departure briefings hosted by Study Adelaide in conjunction with their brand ambassador announcement across key cities in South East Asia and South Asia in early 2020.

    This is a remarkable opportunity for SAA members operating in South Australia and also establishes a platform from which NPAS accredited providers can potentially be promoted by Study Adelaide in the future.

    Student Accommodation Association's next Industry Lunch will be held in Sydney. Featuring key speaker Bassina Farbenblum!

    Date: Wednesday 20 November

    Venue: Hyatt Regency Sydney

    Time: 12:00 noon – 2:00pm

    Bassina will preview key findings from the Information for Impact survey of over 5,000 international students, which will be released in a report in late November 2019. The survey addressed a range of issues related to international students’ housing, including where they lived, how they found their housing and the problems they encountered. She will focus in particular on findings related to students who lived in PBSA, as well as those who lived in share houses, which were by far the most common housing category.

    Bassina will also discuss key findings from the UNSW Human Rights Clinic's report No Place Like Home: Addressing Exploitation of International Students in Sydney’s Housing Market, released in July 2019.
