NFTMO Annual Conference 2016 - learning and celebrating
Delegates got together for thought provoking workshops and plenary sessions in addition to celebrating with two TMO being awarded the NFTMO Good Governance Kitemark - Suffolk Estate and Roupell Park(pictured) .
Key plenary speaker Tim Morton of the Social Housing Under Threat (SHOUT) campaign outlined the 'skeleton' Housing and Planning Act. He urged delegates to stay in the discussion with the Houses of Lords and Commons as detailed regulations are worked out.
Liz Michael gave details of a good practice publication available on the NFTMO website about extending TMOs to include more homes.

AFTA Thought Training Consultants brought the Saturday morning plenary session to life, with their actors unexpectedly “stagebombing” the conference with an energetic and inclusive interruption. As well as entertaining us they focused attention on the issues later explored in their workshop. They presented scenarios that explored the challenges currently faced by TMOs.
Of the AFTA Thought workshop Samantha Salahi from Friday Hill TMO said “I found it very relevant. I could relate to everything .... I think the actors are fantastic and believable and like real-life."
