What are CIH regional boards?
In England, CIH is split into nine separate regions. When a new member joins CIH they are automatically assigned to one of these regions, based on their geographic location. Each of these regions is represented by their own board.
Regional boards are responsible for representing the housing profession within their local area. Their job is to influence regional policy consultations, host local seminars and events, and establish links with universities, colleges and other local stakeholders to promote careers in housing.
Why should I get involved?
Being a member of your regional board will allow you to get involved with like-minded professionals and make a difference to housing in your area. You'll be involved in hosting local events which support and upskill housing professionals in your area, and this in turn will provide you with an opportunity to network with peers across the sector.
Joining a regional board will also allow you to develop on both a personal and professional level. Being involved with the governance of your professional body will look great to future employers and will demonstrate your commitment to housing and your understanding of the issues faced by the sector both locally and nationally.
