    A mix of both would surely be best for the members.

    Newbies need to learn to be landlords too, and oldies are always buyer more (or selling it to newbies)

    Why would a newbie need to learn to be a landlord when there are excellent property managers out there?

    I thought you'd appreciate that

    You only need to talk to a tenant or investor who has dealt with q******c to find out what not to do

    I had a cold call recently from that company after I advertised a property on Trade Me. They promised to email me information. The email turned up days later - minus the attachments they referred to in the email.

    Which one is (or was) which?

    Wellington PIA was here first and I think actually predates NZPIF.

    Capital PIA is the "new" one - but has been going for a few years now.

    I meant... which one had more newbies and which one had more experienced investors?

    I'm thinking about joining PIA but feel rather sheepish about it. I'm female in my late 20s and only have one cashflow negative PI and don't own my PPOR. Would I feel completely out of place?

    Don't be embarrassed!! PIA's love to have new people attending. There's some really wise people go to PIA meetings and they just want to natter about their favourite topic - investing!!

    It doesn't matter whether you're male/female, Irish/Chinese/Mongolian, 20/30/40, 1/2/3 properties.

    Just attend!!!
    Patience is a virtue.

    Capital PIA had more newbies last time I was attending both.

    I suggest you go to a few meetings for both and join whichever suits you best.

    You may be able to talk them into some sort of trial attendance where you don't have to pay for the meeting.

    You'll probably get most out of it by networking before and after the meetings...

    Which reminds me, I really must start going to the meetings again.
