We're proud of the fast-growing community of organisations that empower their employees with the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to be confident in their ability to do their job well and to help them develop their career. Below is the list of AHI Corporate Members and Associates.
We are delighted to be joining AHI as a corporate member as it is consistent with our goal to build a high performance culture. Wentworth has a strong commitment to staff development and training, and we value the quality of professional services and networking opportunities that AHI provides. As a corporate member, Wentworth will benefit from the discounts available on training and events, allowing our staff to maximise opportunities for their personal and professional development.
Stephen McIntyre, CEO, Wentworth Community Housing
Kainga Ora is very pleased to be a Corporate Supporter of the Australasian Housing Institute. We get great value from it, with AHI providing leading edge, quality professional development opportunities and frequent forums to network with peers across Australia and New Zealand. AHI is building the capability of the social housing workforce, and this will become only more important as the sector continues to change and evolve.
Andrew McKenzie, Chief Executive at Kainga Ora
I’ve attended a few conferences and seminars that are run by AHI and found them to be very relevant and useful. Being a Corporate Member allows our staff to benefit from this training and development. AHI is a recognised body in the community and social housing sector and membership allows access to sharing in the industry-specific knowledge culture, and is strategic in order to progress in the wider aspect of responding to issues and initiating solutions on a collective basis.
CHC Affordable Housing
Unity recognises the need to continue to grow the professionalism of our housing sector, and has been a longstanding supporter of the AHI through event sponsorship and participation. Becoming a Corporate Member was the next logical step in our support of the AHI. I believe there is an obvious need to develop an accredited and benchmarked professional training structure across the national housing sector, and the AHI is the obvious vehicle to achieve that.
Matthew Woodward, CEO, Unity Housing
I'm from the U.K. and one of the striking differences between the Australian community housing sector and the British sector is a lack of supply of talent. We find recruiting the right talent difficult, and I really believe that organisations like the AHI should be strengthening the capacity of our sector by building capability and capacity in our future leaders.
Nicola Lemon, CEO, Hume Community Housing
The Māori Housing Network was established in 2015 within Te Puni Kōkiri (Ministry of Māori Development). It brought together a range of different government funding streams and our funds have increased over the last two Budgets. We currently invest just under $20 million per year across Māori housing in three focus areas: Building the capacity of the Māori housing sector; improving the quality of housing (principally repairs) and increasing the supply of affordable rental housing. It was a logical step to join the AHI as we build on the expertise and professionalism of our staff working with Māori communities on housing.
Robert Macbeth, Maori Housing Network
HCA became a member of AHI as it is seen as one of the leading member organisation supporting the social and community housing professionals. The AHI offers great value across the range of activities it provides especially the engagement and connections with colleagues and peers across the sector. The AHI also has excellent professional development opportunities that ensures the social and community housing sector increases its capability and capacity to meet the needs of providing quality services and affordable housing to those most in need.
Michael Lennon, CEO, Housing Choices Australia
Emerge Aotearoa is committed to growing as a community housing provider in New Zealand. Our team of housing professionals is growing and we view corporate membership with AHI as a recognised professional body as an important link for the ongoing development of our people.
Hope Simonsen, National Housing Manager, Emerge Aotearoa
The Women’s Housing Company is pleased to be a Corporate Associate Member of the Australasian Housing Institute. The AHI supports our industry through training, accreditation, seminars, publications and awards. We look forward to strengthening our participation in these events and working collaboratively with our colleagues across community housing to meet the challenges of our growing industry. We also look forward to sharing through various AHI platforms our specialist knowledge and experience in addressing the housing needs of women and striving for more safe, secure and affordable housing in Australia.
