Corine Meier, International Affairs & Funding Officer, National Housing Federation
Corine has worked at the Federation for the past seven years, entering the social housing sector following years of managing IT-related projects in the private sector.
She first worked in governance, providing advice to member housing associations, and managing Get on Board, the Federation board member recruitment service.
Three years ago, following David Orr's appointment as President of CECODHAS, the European Liaison Committee for Social Housing, she moved into international affairs, working on European policy, including EU procurement rules and state aid, brokering exchanges between members and associations abroad and enabling access to European funds, such as £100m of European Regional Development Funds.
She is also part of the newly formed Funding & Partnership team at the Federation and involved in helping members secure funds for energy efficiency programmes.
Corine is currently leading the Federation financing retrofitting project which aims to help housing associations draw down European Investment Bank funding to invest in energy efficiency devices and measures.
Corine is also a shared owner and resident board member of a London-based housing association.
