AVS 2016 General Assembly marked the retirement of their long-standing director Francisca Cabrera Director of AVS since 1988. AVS have been a fantastic team member and a much valued reference point for Housing Europe which was founded in the same year.
Speaking at the assembly Housing Europe Secretary General passed on messages from colleagues and friends from the Housing Europe network who re-called the contribution made by Francisca to housing in Spain remarking on her humanity and the fact that during her work at AVS she always kept her focus on the needs of the most vulnerable and always brought positive energy to our work.
AVS office will be headed up by Enrique Bueso Guirao and Housing Europe look forward to continued collaboration. The General Assembly was also the opportunity to present the Spanish Social Housing Awards to 4 winning projects in the categories of renovation accessibility & energy efficiency, New build, society and community & Ensuring the right to housing.
You can still send messages to Francisca who will be accessing mails until the end of the year. Thanks Francisca for being a great and fun colleague!
