The voice of building societies
Knowledge sharing and educational events for building societies that increase awareness of business issues and provide the tools and skills that industry professionals need to develop their roles. Many of our events are open to other mortgage lenders and product providers.
In recent years the recognised career path to mortgage underwriter has changed substantially, partly due to the changing nature of mortgage advice. This brand new intensive two-day course has been designed to fully equip underwriters with the knowledge required to carry out their role effectively.
This one-day programme will give participants a framework to understand how to navigate the media. Delegates will gain practical experience of preparing for and handling broadcast interviews, including those caused by crises. At the end of the day you will communicate with more authority and personal credibility, be able to pitch your message at the right level and achieve a more successful outcome. It’s not just about media training but gaining media confidence.
Directors and senior managers of building societies are subject to a range of duties and obligations, breach of which may result in potential liabilities. ‘Reasonable steps’, and the ability to evidence that they have been taken, are key to managing risk. But what are ‘reasonable steps’ and how can they be evidenced in practice? This seminar, run in conjunction with Addleshaw Goddard LLP, will cover these issues and offer practical suggestions to address these.
The BSA is working with KPMG to put on a full day seminar in London to provide members with the latest update on the Basel capital framework, and in particular on the outcome from the 'Basel 4' reviews of standardised and IRB credit risk and operational risk which was due to be published in January.

The event is intended to bring together researchers interested in building societies and financial mutuals in order to stimulate ideas, discussion and future research.
