It is with great regret that we announce that Mirjana Kreiselmaier is leaving CENSW. Her last day will be Tuesday 10 August. Mirjana has been with CENSW for 10 years and during this time has provided exceptional service and leadership to the Co-operative Housing sector often going above and beyond the call of duty.
Mirjana has built strong connections and relationships with many of you and we are sure you will join us in wishing her all the best. Her passion, commitment and experience for all things Co-op Housing will be missed.
We also thank her for her immense contribution to the ongoing development of CENSW and the Co-op Housing sector.
Corine Addison will take over interim management of the Co-op Development Team until we recruit for Mirjana’s replacement.

Manuela’s vaccination story
Manuela from Sedgwick Co-op had her first COVID-19 vaccine on the 3rd July 2021 – International Day of Co-operatives!
