The Northern Ireland Federation of Housing Associations will hold its Annual Conference on 5-6 November 2015, which will be attended by more than 200 delegates – BoardPacks among them! We’ll be joining senior executives and boards of housing associations, local community support organisation participants, local councils, statutory agencies and many more of the 3,000-plus staff currently working in Northern Ireland’s social housing sector.
So, you might be wondering where we fit in all this. Well, as the UK’s most innovative web and app-based governance and meeting management tool provider, we’re already working with a number of housing associations that are benefitting from time and cost savings, improved governance and information sharing as a result. The National Housing Federation, Watford Community Housing Trust and Tai Ceredigion have all deployed the technology solution to:
- Increase efficiency and move towards a paperless environment
- Provide board members with secure, real-time access to meeting information, documents and agendas, helping to transform speed and effectiveness of decision-making
- Enable effective governance and provide auditability throughout the organisation
Ultimately, through BoardPacks, housing associations are able to integrate risk mitigation, compliance and decision making into meeting and document management. This allows them to introduce a framework that instils better governance, ensuring procedures are followed, risks are managed and decisions are made effectively.
When we spoke to the National Housing Association about what in particular made them want to engage BoardPacks, the Head of Governance and Company Secretary, had this to say: “We want to be seen as embracing the latest technology and leading the way for other boards. We want to set an example that all housing association boards can follow.”
So if you’re interested to find out how, we’d be delighted to meet you at the conference on stand 24. Or, if you can’t make it, why not give us a call on +44 (0) 845 200 7829.
