Making it easy for Housing Managers to connect with people and the best technology for better results
A solid understanding of how to qualify for a mortgage and the role mortgages can play in solving housing problems. You will also understand how credit ratings impact your Governments ability to raise more money for your housing strategy.
Your strongest professional network is achieved by ongoing participation in the Indigenous Housing Managers Guild where you have access to peers, mentors, systems, and information to solve your housing challenges.
You will learn about using the best proven design methods and housing components to keep costs down and houses affordable.
The Guild can save you money if we all combine our purchasing power. This means planning ahead and ordering together which the Guild can assist you in planning and ordering.
Transparency between community members and the housing department is essential. Your housing strategy, housing policy, housing list, etc. need to be online and easily accessible. This service is available to Guild members.
This is one of the biggest benefits of the Guild. A community of like minded people working on solving similar challanges. The solution to a problem that has been troubling you, might be a phone call away to the Guild - or a bigger one might take all of us petitioning at the appropriate level of Government/s for a solution. Either way it makes your job and life a lot simpler.
Imagine that because of your participation in the Guild, you now have systems and processes in place that ensure your job is being done better than before - or even better than anyone else could do it. That means you can have a life and time to yourself without everything falling apart when you are away.
It doesn't matter what level of proficency as a housing manager that you currently are at. The Guild's approach is eveyone is equal and we rely on systems and processes to ensure that once you are a Guild member you will have the tools to dramatically increase your proficiency.
I truly believe that together we can completely end the Indigenous Housing and Tuberculosis crisis within 10 years while significantly closing the socio-economic gap of disparity through exponential technologies.
