East Midlands regional meetings

East Midlands Executive Forum

This quarterly forum is open to all housing association chief executives whose organisations operate in the East Midlands, and acts as a place where chief executives can share information, challenges, expertise and best practice on the strategic issues that matter to them, as well as influencing the NHF’s work. This group is chaired by Jo Savage, Chief Executive, Greatwell Homes.

If you are a chief executive in the East Midlands and aren’t receiving emails about these meetings, please contact our Admin team.

The forum is shaped by a small sounding board of members from a variety of housing associations across the region.

East Midlands Sounding Board

The Sounding Board is a small focus group of between six and nine chief executives that work closely with the NHF External Affairs Manager, helping to direct and deliver the East Midlands Chief Executives Forum as well as the NHF’s wider work across the East Midlands, including stakeholder engagement and lobbying activities. Membership of the Sounding Board is reviewed annually
