Being a member gives me plenty of opportunities to meet others within the housing industry. To share ideas and best practice which I can take back to Cartrefi Conwy. It has also helped my professional development, I have gained more confidence in my abilities as well as a greater understanding across the many aspects that links to housing.

Jason Wroe FCIH | Chief executive, Newydd Group Ltd
I know that most housing organisations look to see if a candidate is trying to keep themselves aware of policy and innovation in the sector and the best way to prove that is an active membership of CIH. It has demonstrated to my employers that I take an interest in developing myself and being part of the wider sector, taking interest in the bigger picture rather than just the estates that I managed in my career.
