A NAHRO Study Exchange Delegation is being planned for late in 2017. The Study Exchange subcommittee is working to organize the exchange in communication with our hosts; the Australasian Housing Institute (AHI) and the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI). Delegation size is suggested to be 10 or less and no more than 12. Tentative dates set for the preliminary agenda are November 27 through December 9, 2017. This timeframe includes attending the AHURI Conference in Sydney November 29 – December 1st. A Pre-Conference Meeting is proposed the day prior to the conference on November 28 with AHURI Representatives from both Australia and New Zealand. AHI also hosts their Awards Ceremony and Dinner at the conference and has extended a formal invitation to our Delegates to be their quests at the featured dinner event.
As in the past with other hosts, AHI will provide some lunches and development tours while doing the study, while all other expenses will be at the cost of the delegates. AHURI has agreed to provide a discounted conference rate to be determined.
Participants will be personally responsible for their own expenses, including airfare, travel, room and board, and incidentals. Generally, delegates will make their own arrangements for getting to the host city. Please let us know by close of business on June 30 if you would like to be considered.
Please prepare a submission using the attached Study Exchange Delegate Selection as a guide (email Carmen Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org for the guide and tentative agenda). Individuals providing a submission will be considered for an invitation that will be sent by approximately July 7.
