Issue: February 2018
Welcome to the February edition of the HousingPeople newsletter. As always, it’s a pleasure to bring you the latest resources and information from the social and affordable housing sector.
Reflecting on the 2017 AHI Member and Friend Survey, I have noticed a growing demand and need for quality connections and support among members of our close-knit social housing professionals community. In order to grow talented future leaders who would make a real difference in the social housing space, we need to work on providing them opportunities today that will open the doors and inspire their hearts tomorrow. As a result, at the beginning of 2018 we launched a pilot of to Mentoring Program in New South Wales. So far we have received great interest from mentees and mentors keen to engage in the meaningful mentoring relationships. The pairs have been successfully matched and the launch event is scheduled for the 22 March 2018. With the assistance of the NSW branch committee and the support of program sponsor, Blooming HR, we look forward to expanding this program to all jurisdictions following the pilot program.
On the professional development note, the first speakers for the Aboriginal Housing Master Class have been announced and we are proud to see how the program is shaping up. Don't miss an opportunity to book your ticket! Early Bird discount closes on 6 April 2018.
