Event Details

Does your association have new board members starting this September?

These sessions are perfect for newer board members who are just starting in their new role, or board members seeking to refresh their skills. During these informative sessions, participants will gain essential insights into board governance, leadership responsibilities, and effective decision-making. They will also have the opportunity to learn from an experienced board member, Mick Warner, who has over 30 years of experience in the housing section. We are certain that this course will support a prospective board member's growth and success within their position.

The sessions of this course were derived from our Board Excellence Programme, but were refined and made shorter for participants who have less time on their hands, or who are unable to commit to the long term investment of the course.

What is this session about?

This sessions looks at what we mean by governance and the different modes of governance. Building on the session The role of the Board member, this session fleshes out the expectations of the Regulator of Social Housing in relation to governance and also the National Housing Federation's Code of Governance 2020. The session also covers the characteristics of effective Board meetings. Whilst focussing mainly on good practice, the session also references examples of governance failings, learning from problem cases in the social housing sector.
