Event description


Welcome to the first CHIA NSW Exchange (CHIA Ex) of 2019! We are excited to present another program crammed with the latest news, developments and updates from within the sector.

The CHIA Ex is a sector wide opportunity that allows members from across the state to hear from industry leaders regarding sector innovation and policy updates, as well as ideas sharing and networking opportunities. CHIA Ex is attended by over 250 people over two days and 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 March CHIA Exchange now!
