About the conference

Strong governance remains as crucial as ever in ensuring the success of an organisation – with the governing body members’ role as leaders of the organisation never more important.

We'll explore lessons learned from the pandemic and demonstrate how the sector has emerged stronger on the other side despite unprecedented challenges. Throughout the two days there will be real life examples from across the sector and beyond, with interactive sessions designed to ensure delegates are engaged in every aspect. 

On the first day, the conference will focus on lessons learned both north and south of the border from the pandemic and explore with delegates what modern governance looks like. This will include shared experiences from governance specialists; regulators and other RSLs – offering delegates an insightful and widespread perspective.

On the second day a range of topics will be explored including virtual governance; governing body member recruitment; ensuring governance is understood; treasury management; and emerging stronger following statutory intervention. 

Why attend

This conference will provide an opportunity for governing body members who attend to network with peers from across the country and come away with fresh ideas and different perspectives.

Is the conference for me?

This participative, engaging conference will be hugely beneficial to any governing body members who attend, regardless of level of experience.

Costs and How to Book

Bookings will be available in the new year and if you would like to register your interest in the conference please contact Karen Devin, SFHA Event Manager on kdevin@sfha.co.uk
