Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) and Tenancy Management Community of Practice Summary

The second Tenancy Management Community of Practice was held via zoom on 13th May 2021. A community of Practice is a way of bringing together people and organisations working on the front line so that they can share knowledge and good practice, discuss issues and work out how best to collaboratively overcome them. The idea is that we are all experts in the work we do so we all have something to contribute and, by working together, we are strong and able to make more progress towards our collective goals.
