Rethinking membership - find out what's happening where you are

16/04/2019


Our Rethinking membership project aims to reimagine the way we connect with and support CIH members in their local area - get an update on our progress so far in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

CIH is here to support housing professionals to create a future in which everyone has a place to call home. And, as a membership body, it’s vital that what we offer reflects what housing professionals want and need from us – now and in the future. That's why we're working with our boards across the UK on our Rethinking membership project.

England

More than 500 people responded to our online survey (which closed on 15 March) or took part in our workshops - a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to have their say.

The Rethinking membership team (which includes regional board members and CIH staff) is currently pulling together a report on your responses and is due to make recommendations for change to CIH's governing board in July - so watch this space for updates.

Scotland

More than 300 people responded to our online survey (which closed on 5 April) or took part in our focus groups in Dumfries, Glasgow and Edinburgh - a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to have their say. The Rethinking membership team (which includes Scotland board members and CIH staff) is currently pulling together a report on your responses and is due to make recommendations for change to CIH's governing board in July - so watch this space for updates.

Wales

Whether you’re a member, former member or have never been member of CIH Cymru, this is your chance to tell us what you need and what you think we should do to make it happen.

You have the choice of taking part in our short online survey or running a workshop if you want to get a bigger group of colleagues and contacts involved. You'll find a toolkit including a presentation, workshop leader's notes, results sheet and email invitation template below, giving you everything you need to run a successful workshop (which should take no longer than an hour and a half) and submit the results.

The deadline to take part in the survey or host a workshop is 5 July, and we'll use the results to make recommendations to the CIH executive team and governing board.

Northern Ireland

Our online survey closed on 26 April - a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to have their say. The Rethinking membership team (which includes Northern Ireland board members and CIH staff) is currently pulling together a report on your responses and is due to make recommendations for change to CIH's governing board in July - so watch this space for updates.
