Working in housing is anything but a glamorous job, yet one that housing professionals have chosen to dedicate their lives. Once every two years, the Australasian industry gets its moment of glam and glory where everyone can relish in their hard-earned successes: AHI Professional Excellence in Housing Awards.
Recognising how important it is for us to stop, smell the roses and recognise the triumphs and accomplishments of our colleagues, the 2015 AHI Professional Excellence in Housing Awards ceremony was held at Perth’s Convention and Exhibition Centre to coincide with this year’s National Housing Conference.
Shattering the previous record crowd for an AHI Awards reception, a capacity gathering of 180 guests enjoyed the opportunity to get together with colleagues from across Australia and New Zealand on 28th October for the gala occasion.
