In this turbulent political environment, no matter what the outcome, one thing is certain: good governance is vital to the health of housing associations. Just following all the correct procedures isn’t enough, governance needs to be embedded into the foundations of your organisation.

That’s why our Housing Governance Conference and Exhibition is so important. The conference provides delegates with strategic insights and practical solutions on how to improve their governance function and continue to be a high performing housing association.

One of the most valuable aspects of the conference are the real-life case studies from housing associations sharing their insights and experience. Research for the 2020 conference is well-underway and we're particularly keen to showcase new and innovative examples of good practice.

So, whether you want to suggest a topic that needs to be covered, shout about a great case study or nominate a speaker on a specific subject, we want to hear from you.

We're particularly keen to showcase examples and case studies in the following key areas:

  • Resident involvement with governance
  • Consumer regulation
  • In Depth Assessments round two
  • Data Governance
  • Board effectiveness
  • Health and safety

Deadline for submissions: Friday 6 December
