2017 Election of Directors

The overall management and strategic direction of the Northern Housing Consortium is entrusted to the Board of Directors who are subject to election each year from Full Member organisations.

Under the Consortium’s governance arrangements, all nominations for the position of Director will be reviewed by the Board (or their nominated representatives), against a Skills Matrix for Directors to ensure that they meet the Board’s requirement to fill any vacancies – a Skills Matrix and Board Director Role Profile are enclosed in the Board Director Nomination Pack.

In accordance with a procedure agreed by the Board, and to ensure a regional geographical balance across the Northern region, we are seeking nominations for a total of four new Directors’ places to be filled for the three-year period 2017-2020.

There are also three Directors who are retiring this year but who wish to stand for re-election they are as follows:

  • Chris Smith, Executive Director of Service Delivery and Development, Thirteen Group
  • Nick Atkin, Chief Executive, Halton Housing Trust
  • Bob Taylor, Group Chief Executive, First Ark

The Board have confirmed their support for the re-election of the above candidates.

Should the number of successful nominations exceed the vacancies available, a postal ballot will be arranged and the results announced for formal approval by the Full Members at the Consortium’s Annual General Meeting on 16th November, 2017 in York.

A nomination form is included in the Nomination Pack, and I invite you to consider and make nominations of candidates no later than 18th August 2017.  Please note that you can nominate more than one candidate but in doing so you should note the conditions for nominating candidates included in the Nomination Pack.
