Wow, what an amazing night at the NHMF Awards! It was great to see so many delegates celebrating in style with the winners.
Well done to all the organisations who made it to the shortlist and thank you to everyone who took the time to enter - it was brilliant to have so many innovative and inspiring projects to choose from.
Not forgetting a huge thank you to our MC, Winston Williams for making sure the evening ran smoothly. See you next year!
NHMF Awards - The Winners
We had a great time at NHMF2020. It's always good to see so many colleagues from the repairs and maintenance sector and find out more about the hot topics facing asset managers working in social housing. There were lots of interesting speakers including Aileen Evans (CIH) and Martin Hilditch (Inside Housing) who kicked off the conference with a look at the future of asset management.
We covered a huge range of topics - from emerging trends within construction, to fitness for human habitation and how to make your apprenticeship schemes deliver tangible results. We'd like to say a big thank you to all our exhibitors and speakers for helping us to make this year such a big success.
Next year, we'll be in Stratford-upon-Avon for NHMF2021.
In the meantime, please visit the website to review this year's presentations.
We always enjoy the Smaller Housing Assocations' Conference and this year was no exception. Here's M3 Senior Business Support Manager, Craig Oosthuizen giving delegates a quick demo of our software. Because we don't believe one size fits all, our reporting & diagnostics system is perfect for supporting teams at smaller housing associations to diagnose and order repairs accurately. Please do get in touch if we missed you!
This year the NHMF Study Tour touched down in Freiburg for two days of knowledge sharing and sessions with a focus on finding out how the city is tackling sustainability and learning more about their innovative solutions to social housing.
The study tour is always a great opportunity to catch up with like-minded colleagues from across the asset management sector and challenge ourselves to assess common problems from a different angle. For anyone who couldn't make it, you can catch up with Steffen Ries from the Innovation Academy in Freiburg at the NHMF Conference in January, where he will be hosting a plenary on innovative approaches to housing and retrofitting.

With great sadness we announce that Liz Circuit, our former Managing Director, passed away on the 26th of July, 2019.
Liz worked for the M3 group for over twenty years – including eight years as secretary of the National Housing Maintenance Forum - and retired in 2018. She continued to serve on the company Board until cancer prevented her.
Liz’s can-do attitude and charitable nature had a big impact on the company, and we will ensure she is not forgotten. There will be a public memorial for Liz later in the year, as a chance for all of us to meet, share stories and remember her. A full obituary, and details of the memorial event, will be published in due course.
