Knowledge, News and Views from the ICG - January 2018

Happy New Year to all our members - all 400 of you! I hope everyone is suitably refreshed after the celebrations...

We kick off the year with two forward looking articles - one about emerging attitudes towards green energy and the second about health and wellbeing.

This month, our regular hints and tips series focuses on the issue of procrastination (and how to overcome it) and we also celebrate 50 years of Homes and Housing survey by having a look at how it has changed and developed over time.

On a lighter note, the Christmas social activities are fully reported in the 'news' section - and we have begun to assemble teams for the ICG MRBA quiz night on the 15th February. If you would like to attend please let Lucie know as soon as possible - book yourself individually or as a team (if you don't have a team, we will be forming teams for you).

As ever, if you have any comments about the ICG or this newsletter please do get in contact - and if you would like to contribute to the website please let me know.


Don't forget we have a 'Go To' licence if you want to have a video conference or present a webinar. It is there for you, so do use it! Just drop Lucie an email
