Event description


Welcome to the second CHIA Exchange of 2019. We are delighted to bring you another packed program of news and best practice from the community housing sector.

CHIA Ex is pivotal to CHIA NSW's key role of helping housing providers to develop, maintain and build the quality of their services and the skills and capacities in organisations. CHIA NSW does this by supporting networks of people involved in various aspects of the business. In this way, peers can learn from each other and share expertise, good practice and emerging issues. Don’t miss out – register for the upcoming CHIA Exchange now!
