Another year and another successful ICSA event. As the designated content person here at Convene, this is one of my favourite opportunities to find out what our clients and users of our board and meeting app are talking about.
On the 14th of June, we attended the National Housing Federation Governance Conference to exhibit our digital platform and board meeting app. This year's conference was all about getting a fresh perspective on leaner governance and more efficient housing associations, which meant that digitalisation was a key topic of discussion amongst the delegates.
On March 14th, Convene had the pleasure of attending the 2018 AoC Governance Summit in London.
Recent events have pushed organisations from all parts of the housing sector to look again at the reasons for decisions taken; from board minutes concerning governance and strategy to business minutes for financial and operational decisions.
It’s very easy to simply buy something that will ‘change the way to do business’, ‘improve productivity’ or ‘make the office sustainable’. However, it is also very easy to fall back into old habits.
