Professor Paddy Gray and Supporting Communities are marking the end of an era with one last conference in partnership with the Ulster University Housing Management students.

This is the final year that the degree will be offered at UU, a course that launched the careers of many of us in the housing profession in Northern Ireland, ROI and further afield, so we thought it fitting to mark the occasion with both a conference and a celebration dinner.

Paddy told us, "This event will be particularly special to me as it will end 30 years of teaching housing to so many students who went on to become great professionals - with most of them remaining in housing. Everywhere I go I meet former students who are making a real difference to people’s lives and I am so pleased I was part of that in a small way. This will be a great opportunity celebrate everything that is good about housing with the many friends I have made over the years."

Both events will be held on May 25th at the Park Avenue Hotel in Belfast. For tickets and more information, see our events page.
