Craig Gurney is Director of the MSc Housing Studies programme at the University of Glasgow; Pathway Lead for Social Work and Social Policy in the Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences and is a management board member for the Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland.  He has 32 years of experience in teaching and researching housing studies and attended his first HSA conference as a PhD student in 1991.  He was previously a management board member for the HSA between 1998-2001 when he served as editor of the quarterly HSA Newsletter and organised the 2001 Housing Imaginations conference in Cardiff.   Previous roles include Chair of Cynon Taf Community Housing Group and lectureships at Sheffield Hallam University (1991-1996) and Cardiff University (1996-2019).  

I am really looking forward to re-joining the HSA as a co-opted management board member. The policy and practice landscape is, of course very different to my last time as board member in the late 1990s and there are now new and significant challenges for housing studies research and education to address.  I am keen to get involved in the important (but too often, unseen) work that the HSA does and hope to be able to bring experience, enthusiasm and scrutiny to the help the board in the coming months in the lead up to our next conference in Sheffield.
