Inspire to achieve
The awards will be presented on Saturday 15th June at the Doubletree by Hilton Westerwood Hotel and Resort as part of the TIS Annual Conference 2019 Gala Dinner.
The Tenants Information Service (TIS) is delighted to invite entries across eight categories for the TIS National Excellence Awards 2019: Inspire to achieve, in association with the Scottish Government.
