The 2021 SFHA Finance Conference is planned to be an in-person conference and will be run in accordance with the latest government guidelines.

There is just one week left to claim your early bird discount to SFHA’s Finance Conference, which will return to Crieff Hydro Hotel in November. Book your place before Tuesday 28 September, and you’ll secure a lower rate for the popular two-day event. 

Here’s a look at our main session highlights: 

Be 'more pirate', rewrite the rules
Alex Barker, Be More Pirate

Being ‘more pirate’ is a shift in your mindset – a willingness to think differently, to challenge and be challenged. Stepping far, far away from the usual innovation frameworks, we’ll dive back into history to see what lessons can be learned from the ‘Golden Age of Piracy’, then explore how pirate principles have been applied successfully by individuals and organisations. 

In conversation with…the Scottish Housing Regulator
Ian Brennan, Scottish Housing Regulator

Ian Brennan of the Scottish Housing Regulator returns to our Finance Conference to deliver a regulatory update and take your questions as part of a discussion with SFHA’s Shona Mitchell. 

Sustainability: financial, environmental and social

Sustainability is a hot topic across all sectors. For housing associations, there are financial and social as well as environmental considerations. This session sees two SFHA members discuss their journey towards sustainability and the strategies they have in place. We will also discuss what the growing appetite from lenders to include strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance as part of their lending criteria means for the sector. 

Ensuring financial and operational resilience 
Michael Cameron (pictured) and Ian Brennan, Scottish Housing Regulator, Colin MacBean, Scottish Government and Sally Thomas, SFHA. 

Key members of the Social Housing Resilience Group (SHRG) will share what has been learned as a result of collaborative working throughout the pandemic. They will also discuss how we can work together effectively to ensure resilience in the sector when faced with future challenges.#
