Northern Housing Consortium 2019 Election of Directors

Northern Housing Consortium
2019 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 Set for Directors to ensure that they meet the Board’s requirement to fill any vacancies – the Skills Set 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 one new Director place to be filled for the three-year period 2019-2022.

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

1. Greg Robinson, Assistant Chief Executive (Resources), Incommunities
2. Steve Close, Chief Executive, Together Housing
3. Paul Fiddaman, Group Chief Executive, Karbon Homes

NB 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 ballot will be arranged and the results announced for formal approval by the Full Members at the Consortium’s Annual General Meeting on 14th November, 2019 in York.

A nomination form is included in the Board Director Nomination Pack & Nomination Form 2019, and I invite you to consider and make nominations of candidates no later than 23rd August 2019. 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.

An application form can be obtained from Kay Wiseman This must be completed by the nominee and returned with the nomination form no later than 23rd August 2019.
