Once again the Acuity SPBM conference for 2018 will explore the horizon from a smaller housing association perspective so that you are in the best possible position to respond positively to the challenges.
All the sessions will seek to make sense of the operating environment and its implications from a smaller housing association perspective:
- the latest on housing policy from the NHF and regulatory developments from the Regulator of Social Housing
- an exploration of the future of social housing and tenant participation post-Grenfell by CIH and TAROE (Tenants and Residents of England)
- Breakout sessions will be repeated so you have more choice over the content:
- Getting it right: lessons in good (and bad) governance from the downgrades
- Developing a bespoke, costed IT Strategy to meet your needs and resources
- New supply: overcoming the obstacles
- Telling a better story: communicating the value of smaller housing associations
There will be ample opportunity to network with colleagues over lunch and at the break.
In the interests of open exchange and transparency, the event will operate in accordance with the Chatham House rule.
