Our annual national event themed in 2023 as 'Solving the Housing Equation' brings together a high-level network limited to 500 industry leaders, partners and associates, parliamentarians, decision makers and international guests with the purpose of developing and sharing best practice for future growth of the community housing sector, both domestically and internationally.
