Thanks to everyone who made it along to our 2019 Annual Conference and making it such as great success.  We’ve had some great feedback 🙂

“I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to come along to the conference on Friday, it honestly was one of the most useful and friendliest events I have been to.”

“Just wanted to drop you a line saying ‘Very Well Done’ for pulling together such a great range of speakers – and a very interesting audience. I managed to talk with a goodly number of really friendly, helpful people who contributed to accelerating my slow progress up the learning curve of Scottish rural housing issues.”

“… enjoyed my first conference.  A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to put together such a comprehensive programme. Lots of different aspects and something there for everyone to benefit from.”
