Introducing… The Mike Kerr Award for the Property Professional of the year

The LAPA Executive team have decided to rename our 2020 Property Professional Award to ‘The Mike Kerr Award for the Property Professional of the year’.

The award is presented to a Property Professional demonstrating a drive to achieve the best outcomes for their organisation/community and doing so with the commitment like that demonstrated by Mike Kerr in his beloved Central Otago.
