The Strategic Repairs and Maintenance (R&M) Forum provides a safe space for Directors in Asset Management and R&M to learn and share information as a group.
Time and time again colleagues across the sector tell us they wanted a space to have more frank and honest discussions, to share experiences. Sector specific conferences tend to only cover the highlights, the success stories. This is a forum where open conversation is encouraged, a group where information is shared. Following extensive feedback from Asset and R&M Directors, we developed the Strategic R&M Forum to create a strong peer learning network.
Our members include Directors from some of the UK’s leading Housing Associations.
