SFHA Chairs' Forum

At our Chairs’ Conference in January, we highlighted that we would be looking to put together an SFHA Chairs’ Forum. This group would act as a sounding board on all issues of interest and concern to Chairs for the mutual benefit of Chairs themselves and SFHA. Whilst most communication is likely to be electronic (depending on preferences),  we will also bring together a meeting of the group, potentially 6 months or so after the annual Chairs’ Conference. We are aiming to have an initial meeting in the Autumn – depending on demand – in order to provide an extra opportunity for members to network and discuss key issues prior to the SFHA Chairs’ Conference in January.
