Join our Financial Policy Advisory Group

29 June 2023

We are seeking two new members for our Finance Policy Advisory Group (FPAG). In particular, finance directors from the North West and East of England.

Phil Elvy, Executive Director of Finance at Great Places Housing Group, and David Armstrong, Chief Operating Officer at Flagship Group, have stepped down from the group following our quarterly meeting in June. We are looking to recruit two new members before December.

We typically request that representatives are the most senior finance personnel at their respective organisation – finance director or equivalent.

What is the Finance Policy Advisory Group?

FPAG currently exists as an expert panel providing senior finance input to NHF policy development and discussion. Areas covered include:

  • Accounting, audit and financial reporting standards.
  • Treasury.
  • Investment.
  • Rents and rent structuring.
  • Taxation.
  • Risk Management and insurance.
  • Financial regulation.
  • Financial viability.
  • Pensions.

The group meets quarterly, with insightful agendas and high profile external speakers. Membership of the group requires engagement through email correspondence between meetings, responding to asks for evidence and steer from NHF colleagues, and ad hoc articles on topical issues for our finance newsletter.

How to apply

If this is something that would be of interest to you or a colleague, or you have any further questions, please get in touch with John Butler, Policy Leader, before 29 September.
