We’re excited to announce the launch of Housemark’s 2022 Specialist Clubs. We’ll be delivering some amazing content across six key areas - Voids, Digital Futures, Welfare Reform, Estate Services, Customer Experience and Repairs and Asset Management. Club membership places are now available.

Our Clubs provide the opportunity for you to join a network that lets you access best practice, the latest thinking and unique networking opportunities. Our Clubs inspire, excite, and help housing professionals innovate in their organisations. Don’t miss out this year on being part of the conversation. Here are 5 top reasons why you should join one of our clubs today!

1. Connect with your community and grow your network

Our Club programme provides opportunities for you to come together with other social landlords in a supportive forum to share best practice, develop your knowledge and gain tangible takeaways that you can put into practice in real time.

By coming together with your peers, you will feel part of a community and will grow your network. It gives you the chance to learn from others and feel empowered that you can make a difference in your organisation by gaining advice and reassurance.

“Very topical and the discussion session was excellent. Really valued hearing from colleagues in other organisations and came away feeling reassured” Georgina Bailey-Allen, Welfare Reform and Tenancy Sustainment Manager, Platform Housing Group 

 2. Keep up to date with the latest thinking and policy insight

Each Club meeting includes a fantastic line-up of in and out of sector experts and is managed by a dedicated Club manager. New speakers are selected for every club meeting to introduce new and emerging topics, so every meeting feels different.

Our Clubs help to keep you up to date with latest policy information, so you’re always on the pulse of what is affecting the sector, impacting your organisation and ultimately the lives of your customers.

You’ll also keep your knowledge up to date with the latest practice insight. You’ll learn directly from those on the front line in different organisations and leave feeling inspired about how you can deliver the best service for your customers.

“The meetings have a varied agenda and spark good discussions. As the Club is now national it brings lots more ideas to each meeting.” Ian Perry, Head of Estates and Caretaking, Nottingham City Homes

 3. There’s a Club for everyone…. enhance your organisation throughout

With Clubs across six key areas, we have a club for everyone – Voids, Digital Futures, Welfare Reform, Estate Services, Customer Experience and Repairs and Asset Management.

With more regulation on the horizon, it’s a good time to keep learning how you can thrive within each area and ensure that you’re meeting regulatory requirements, from those in the Social Housing White Paper to Tenant Satisfaction Measures. Our Clubs help put you in the best position possible to deal with the changing landscape of the social housing sector and help your organisation remain on top of its game.

4. You help shape the agenda and receive Club content that’s right for you

At all our Club meetings, content is driven by members’ priorities and requests, truly giving you the chance to shape the agenda for the future. You’ll be able to attend Club meetings that will ultimately provide you with the knowledge and advice that you’re seeking to really benefit you and your organisation.

5. Keep on top of your sector knowledge

Between Club meetings you’ll benefit from specialist topic briefings and articles to keep you up to date with the latest news relevant to your Club so you can always stay in the know.

You’ll also receive access to our Knowledge Base – an online database of housing articles and case studies, plus exclusive access to a Club members’ forum to increase networking and learning opportunities in between Club meetings.
