Introduction to Budgets and Management Information for Board Members

12 January 2022
1.5 hour training will provide Board Members with an introduction to Budgets and Management information. Maintaining a social landlord’s financial viability is a critical part of a board member’s role now and therefore understanding budgets and financial information is something all board members will be expected to do.
