The National Housing Federation is using eShare’s BoardPacks board portal and governance software for its board meetings in order to reduce the time and cost of printing board papers, having originally discovered eShare at its own Company Secretaries Conference. The Federation is using the BoardPacks app and meeting management module.
Stephen Bull, head of governance and company secretary, National Housing Federation, said, “As the trade body for housing, we want to be seen to be embracing the latest technology and leading the way for other boards. We want to set an example that all housing associations’ boards can follow.
“BoardPacks is saving us a lot of admin and printing time, as well as the cost of postage, plus our board members now have easy access to historical board papers during meetings.”
Using the software has streamlined the Federation’s meeting management process, and switching to iPads has enabled board members to have all the governance information they need at their fingertips. The Federation has since rolled out BoardPacks to its leadership team and audit and risk committee.
