Thank you to everyone who joined us for the M3 User Group in November. It was great to get your feedback on what improvements you'd like to see to ensure we deliver the most effective software solutions, whatever your level of expertise. If you haven't attended one of our groups before here's a taster from one of our delegates: "...I found the session extremely informative & engaging, very impressed with the level of genuine support from all at M3 regardless of the size of the issue."

Thank you to everyone who joined us on the NHMF Study Tour in Glasgow. Ben Virgo led the group on a two day tour, including an introduction to Glasgow social housing & an inspiring trip to City Building's Queenslie Training Centre. It was great to see such a wide range of employer supported apprentice training programmes in action. There'll be more on this at the NHMF Conference where Professor Paddy Gray will be discussing apprentice academies in relation to the housing industry. See you there.
Well done to Liz Circuit and Paul Flowers who, after hours of studying and lots of late night revision have both gained the Institute of Directors Certificate in Company Direction, the first step on the route to becoming a Chartered Director. Congratulations Liz and Paul, we salute you!
Ben and Joanna had a really productive day at the NHF Smaller Housing Associations' Conference on 1 November. Sharing knowledge and experience is really important to us, so it was great to meet so many delegates and find out more about how we can help smaller housing associations punch above their weight. Thank you to everyone who visited our stand - we're looking forward to seeing you in Birmingham for the NHMF Maintenance Conference in January. See you there!
Here's Joanna at the ICSH Finance & Development Conference in Kilkenny where Matt and the team were busy showcasing M3Pamwin and finding out more about the challenges facing social housing providers across Ireland. With over 270 housing associations represented by the ICSH, the conference was a great opportunity to meet lots of delegates and we can't wait to be back soon!
Our brand new M3Pamwin Plus stand made its debut at the NHF Treasury Conference & Exhibition in London this month. It was a great opportunity to catch up with some familiar faces and find out more about the challenges our clients in the housing maintenance sector are facing. Next stop, Kilkenny for the ICSH Finance & Development Conference. We hope to see you there!
It was great to meet the team from North Wales Housing Association for our M3Pamwin Plus User Day on 3 October. M3 Director, Paul Flowers updated the group on the latest appraisal & project management features & demonstrated how to ensure development projects take account of the unique regulatory environment in Wales. If you would like to book some training on the latest M3Pamwin Plus features, please call us on 020 8274 4000.
It was a tough job but with preparations for the next year's NHMF Conference hotting up, somebody had to volunteer for the difficult task of menu planning for the NHMF Awards dinner. Our dedicated team of food tasters sampled some amazing dishes created by the Hilton Metropole's chef and his team. We can't reveal the final selection but we can confim chocolate will be involved....
Congratulations to Joanna for winning Star Baker in our coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan. She just pipped Paul to the post with her M3 Mole Cake - sounds like an unlikely winner, but trust us, it was yummy! Well done Joanna!
Thank you to everyone who attended our open house event as part of Mitcham Heritage Day on 8 September. It was great to meet so many local residents and we really enjoyed hearing visitors share stories from the days when the building was still a popular pub. Did you know the Three Kings used to be owned by a famous music hall duo, the Poluski Brothers? We'd love to add to our research, so please do get in touch if you have any connection to the Poluski family or the pub that you'd like to share.
