Carmel Hurst OAM –

“I have decided that this is no time for modesty. I too, like Beris Campbell, have been awarded an Order of Australia Medal. My medal is awarded for my work in bringing Homeshare to Australia. In my case it is an award for the team.

“So let us make the most of it. Two awards for Homeshare suggests that we are being taken seriously, that it is an excellent program, that government is happy with us and that we must not let such an opportunity pass. I think also, that the award bestows some cachet on HANZA and I cannot see why Homeshare won’t become as common as sliced bread and unable to be ignored. With this in view, we shall be working as hard as possible at the promotion of Homeshare.”
