Governance Essentials and SHR Engagement

15th Oct 2015 9:30am-1:00pm

Effective governance is on everyone’s lips these days but what does this actually mean, and what practical steps can governing body members take to make sure they remain in control? There are also issues of engagement and intervention from time to time, when it can be hard to immediately spot what additional expectations there may be in that type of situation. Governing body members also wanted to know what sources of support and advice they can call on when things go a little off beam.

This session addressed these points and more besides. The morning was led by Jim Strang, CEO of Parkhead Housing. There was also be shorter presentations from David Bookbinder, Director of GWoSF and finally we were pleased to have Margaret Sharkey and Katrina Kelly from the Scottish Housing Regulator.

The session ended with a relaxed buffet lunch and networking opportunity.
