Run every second year, to coincide with the NHC, the AHI Awards Gala Dinner is a rare opportunity to celebrate the success of social and affordable industry peers and to congratulate the worthy winners personally. The awards formally recognise and reward excellence in professional practice, from the grassroots to the most senior levels. The Australasian Awards will go to housing professionals who are judged to have made a significant and lasting difference: to tenants or service users; to their community; to their colleagues; and to their profession.
In 2019 the Institute received a record number of nominations – more than 150 entries from all over Australia and New Zealand – outlining successful projects and inspiring stories from housing authorities, small and large community housing providers, from tenants and dedicated teams. Finalists of the 2019 AHI Professional Excellence in Housing Awards from all jurisdicaions will be automatically entered the Australasian awards.
