ACHIA Aboriginal Caucus Day and Breakfast
Join us after the Good Growth Housing Conference for the ACHIA Aboriginal Caucus Day and Breakfast. The NSW Aboriginal Community Housing sector is undergoing a period of rapid change and the Aboriginal Caucus day will give the sector an opportunity to discuss and workshop three key elements designed to strengthen the sector and develop stronger ties with non-Aboriginal partners.
These are: • The development of a new Aboriginal peak organisation- the Aboriginal Community Housing Industry Association (ACHIA) to provide an independent voice for the sector, • Work with Aboriginal community housing providers to strengthen their organisations to prepare for registration • And a focused approach to support non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal housing organisations to further develop mutually respectful partnerships. The Caucus day will also include national and international speakers on First Nations housing and sector development.
The ACHIA Caucus day will include:
* An Aboriginal Women’s Leadership Breakfast and
* A Brothers in Housing Breakfast (Note: this will be held at Australian Hall 150 Elizabeth Street, Sydney)
This event is open to all ACHPs and Aboriginal staff members from the sector.
