A world renowned journalist with a keen interest in social housing, Mark Easton will be joining us on 7th June for the Invest to save CHIC conference and exhibition.

Mark has spent the last 12 years as Home Editor for the BBC news and has won numerous awards for his reporting, most recently winning a Royal Statistical Society Award.

His attendance will provide you the opportunity to not only hear Mark’s views on the sector, but to also debate them with him.


A number of workshops to help you to invest to save

Invest to save has a particular focus on improved efficiency, smart housing, quality services and lower costs… and our workshops reflect that.

On the day you can expect to attend the CPD workshops that are listed below and much more.

–          Governance secrets of effective asset management

–          Safe, decent and legal compliance

–          The future of in-house contracting and cost-sharing vehicles

–          How to achieve excellence in asset management

Network with our supply chain partners and service providers

There will be an exhibition all day, central to the conference, featuring a wide variety of CHIC’s supply chain partners and service providers. We have allowed for plenty of time for networking within the exhibition hall.

CHIC trainee of the year

Developed to recognise the achievements of an outstanding trainee who has shown exceptional progress and commitment on a CHIC member project, the winner will be announced at the conference.

It’s free!

And we’re not just talking about the conference – lunch is free too!

Invest to save is free for all members of the social and affordable housing community to attend. If you work for a Housing Association, Local Authority, ALMO or charity then this conference is for you. Board members, resident representatives, executive and operational staff are all welcome.

Any housing provider who manages to bring along 6+ representatives will be entered into a draw to win a day’s free work from the whole CHIC team on any social project that you require assistance with. The harder, the better!

In case you didn’t think that it could get any better – all workshops will be CPD registered!
