Three of the most significant proposals in this consultation would see the introduction of; the Annual Assurance Statement; engagement Plans for all landlord and a new way to present our regulatory view of RSLs.

Tea and Coffee


The impact on your Committee/Board
How the changes are likely to affect Committee/Boards more generally.  The concern amongst some during consultation was that the changes asked too much of a voluntary Committee/Board.  Is this likely to be the case?  And if so, will increased responsibilities for hamper efforts to attract new Committee/Board members?

Linda Ewart, Consutlant, Ask Linda Ewart


The impact on the sector – will the Regulatory Framework help or hinder?
This session considers the larger context into which the Regulatory Framework fits.  Looking at the need for change which inspired the new Regulatory Framework, the changes that have been introduced and the challenges that the sector faces going forward.  Will the new Regulatory Framework help or hinder the sector?
