Join us in ‘building our place’ and take part in the 2017 CHA- IMPACT Conference

New Zealanders need to know there are solutions to the housing crisis facing this country.

Conferences Events Wellington CHA New Zealand ImpactThe 2017 IMPACT conference asks how the community housing sector can contribute to delivering the vision of ‘all New Zealanders well housed’ and offers an opportunity to join the conversation and become part of the solution to improve housing outcomes for all New Zealanders.

The conference will create the pathway to turning the vision and goals of ‘Our Place’ into a reality.  CHA IMPACT-2017 will offer you the chance to take part in this dialogue and learn about innovation from overseas and in New Zealand that can shape the way we provide housing solutions.

This will be a forward-looking, influential event that will be a landmark in the development of New Zealand’s housing policy. The 2015 conference was a game-changer introducing Housing First to New Zealand policy makers and this year’s conference will be no different.

CHA-IMPACT 2017 will provide the vehicle to inspire change in housing policy and for the development of the community housing sector. The conference will explore the following themes:

  • Delivering homes – development, finance, stock transfer, partnerships
  • Ending homelessness – emergency housing, homelessness and housing first
  • Delivering services – tenancy management, housing support, community development, design and sustainable housing
  • Building capacity – regulation (CHRA), best practice, MSD contracting and purchasing strategy, information and skill development

Set in the inspiring venue of TE PAPA on Wellington’s waterfront, we invite you to join us from 7 to 9 June this year.

Stay tuned to this website to find out who our key presenters will be.

I look forward to seeing you there.
