Call for papers

We're on the hunt for the best examples of excellence in housing finance. Whether you want to suggest a topic that needs to covered, shout about a great case study or nominate a speaker on a specific subject, we want to hear your experiences and insights.

This is your chance to play a key role in shaping the agenda for the event.

We're particularly keen to showcase examples and innovation in the following key areas:

  • Business transformation
  • Technology (particularly back office)
  • Innovation and value for money
  • Risk management

We're primarily looking for contributions and case studies from housing associations. However, we are also looking for some content from commercial organisations who work closely with the social housing sector. Please get in touch if you're interested in learning more about this commercial opportunity.
