Building Societies Conference Day 1

BSA Chair and Chief Executive of the Family Building Society, Mark Bogard, welcome remarks


Opening day one of the Building Societies annual conference, which returned to a face-to-face format for the first time since 2019, BSA Chair, Mark Bogard, raised the dangers of group think and the need to listen to opposing thoughts.

He noted that building societies and credit unions have earned the right to have their say. They start from a base that is member focused, providing an important service to savers and borrowers. With a freedom to challenge he encourages members to engage and debate and to continue a resolve to be independent, thoughtful and add to the vibrancy and diversity of the financial services sector.

Mark also thanked this year’s four Headline Sponsors: DXC TechnologyFinastraMutual Vision and Target Group and Sponsors: BDOieDigitalRSASalesforce and Sopra as well as all the exhibitors without whom the conference could not happen.
