Governance: a deeper understanding


Housing association boards have had much to contend with in recent years. And there’s little sign of things getting quieter for them in the years ahead. A major overhaul of the regulatory system governing housing associations is having a big impact on boards, and in ways which were perhaps not predicted.

Get it right and your board really can make a difference – providing independent and objective oversight on your strategy. They can be the critical friend you need when times get tough. Get it wrong and your board can act as drag on performance and effectiveness.
