The Northern Housing Socials have now rebranded under the Housing Digital umbrella.
Over 100 housing professionals attended the Northern Housing Socials in June and September, and Housing Digital is excited to be opening them up to all Housing Digital members to attend for free.
The video socials form part of the Housing Digital community, which includes a secure social wall where members can post content and connect with hundreds of other registered users.
Housing Digital members can also publish news stories and job vacancies on the site free-of-charge.
Commenting on the rebranding, Housing Digital editor Liam Turner (formerly of 24housing) said: “It’s great to see the Northern Housing Socials come under the Housing Digital umbrella and reach out to the entirety of the housing sector in the UK.
“The Northern Housing Socials were well attended and received, and as such we aim for the Housing Digital Socials to be even bigger and even better.
“Ultimately, we want attendees to walk away with a greater insight into the sector and with new acquaintances that we hope will blossom into meaningful professional relationships.”
Joe Broun, founder of Northern Housing Socials and Housing Digital Publisher, added: “We are keen to embrace the benefits of video networking for our members, to encourage wider collaboration across the UK housing sector and help bring back the joy of networking to peoples’ work life.
“This represents the final piece of the puzzle for Housing Digital – which we hope can bring a real sense of community to the sector’s professionals.”
The first Housing Digital Social will take place on Tuesday 13 October with a general introductory session.
There are plans to expand sessions to four per month, organised around areas of profession, and they will be free to attend for all members of Housing Digital.
Places are limited to 30 per session and available strictly on a first-come-first-serve basis.
