The impact of the board on a company’s performance is immense. To provide value, the board must have diversity of expertise, skills and experience that provides comprehensive knowledge of the underlying industry, global experience, technology fluency and governance skills.

As a board member you need to be confident to question the latest thinking on governance and leadership from top speakers, understand the answers and know the environment you’re working in. This conference will give you the essential tools and information you need to do just that.

About the event

The Board Members' Conference is a great opportunity to focus solely on social housing and support for a couple of days and to learn highly relevant approaches from others in a similar field.

The Board Excellence in Housing Conference (previously Board Members' Conference) has been created for the sector by the sector. It attracts over 250 delegates including board members, chairs, chief executives, head of governance and company secretaries to focus on challenges unique to a housing association boardroom including:

  • Connecting your board’s capabilities to business needs
  • Rebuilding trust and reputation after downgrading
  • Achieving a partnership focused on visibility, clarity and accountability
  • Climate change and the long-term implications for the social housing sector
  • Joining up housing and public health
  • Building a business case for investment in new technologies
  • Resident-landlord relationships and the Social Housing Green Paper

Have you got your ticket?

This year we’re transforming the event, taking a huge step forward in the type of content and formats we deliver to help you progress your strategic vision and plans for your organisation.

We’ve structured the agenda to make the sessions as interactive as possible so you can get the best value from our speakers. You’ll work collaboratively with your peers to refocus your current approaches and develop new ways of thinking about your work as a board.

About the event

The conference was very useful because all the topics discussed are vital to my role as a board member. I can now go to my organisation and ask challenging questions on data transfer, diversity, domestic abuse and commercial risk.
