East of England regional meetings

East of England Executive Forum

Senior staff and board chairs of housing associations are invited to attend the East of England Executive Forum, which is held three to four times a year. The forum is a place where senior housing leaders can discuss strategic issues and influence the NHF’s work. 

If you are a chief executive or chair in the East of England 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.
