The AHI exists to unite and support a vibrant and self confident social housing profession across New Zealand and Australia. Our purpose is to support people in achieving excellence in their work, and the best possible outcomes for their clients, local communities and their organisations. We do this through a range of services designed to promote and develop a skilled and professional sector. Our members comprise individuals, housing organisations, government agencies, and corporate supporters who provide services to the sector. 

We would like to invite you to join our community of like-minded people because only with support of people like you can we improve our profession. As an AHI member, you will benefit from the opportunities for continuing education and development, from the professional development programs available to you and from sharing ideas and knowledge with fellow professionals. Your commitment to the AHI also shows your support of the housing profession, adding to its strength, which benefits us all.
