NEWLY-ELECTED chair of Women in Property for 1995, Judith Gershon, intends to help build a better future for women professionals in the property field.

Gershon, a commercial property specialist at Eversheds Birmingham, will host the association’s national conference in the city this autumn.

She emphasises that the association’s 500-plus membership encompasses most property-related disciplines.

She says: “Far from being a group of ardent feminists intent on using the association for political or sexist purposes, it provides a forum for professional development.”
