Community Housing Aotearoa relaunch

For immediate release: 21 May 2008

Community Housing Aotearoa relaunch brings new spirit to the housing sector

Community Housing Aotearoa is proud to announce the arrival of its new "look" via its new website and logo. Displaying its vibrant and energetic new image at its relaunch event tomorrow night, Community Housing Aotearoa director Thérèse Quinlivan says the relaunch is an indicator of the group's renewed vitality and commitment to the sector.

Training and Business Unit Manager, Dan Neely says the new website is indicative of the sector and where it is heading. "The website is refreshing and dynamic, representing the effectiveness of the organisation that brings about change."

Working on the logo and website for several months, he says the response from its members has been positive. Talking about why the relaunch has come about, Ms Quinlivan says the new look will inject a renewed enthusiasm for the community housing sector.

Community Housing Aotearoa has worked hard to get a good cross range of attendees to the relaunch such as the Minister for Housing Maryan Street, other politicians, housing academics, socially conscious businesses and range of community based organisations.

Ms Quinlivan expects the relaunch event to bring a new excitement and energy to the sector. "We hope the event will bring people together." Community Housing Aotearoa is the umbrella body for 170 members nationwide.
