Community Housing Cymru’s Board Member Offer 2019/20

Good governance is fundamental to the success of Housing Associations in Wales.

Our members are best placed to achieve their ambitions if they have effective governance structures in place and as a sector, we owe it to those we serve to ensure we do.

Housing Associations in Wales attract skilled, passionate board members, who drive their businesses forward and make their communities better.

The businesses you represent are complex and the pressure on boards has never been greater.

Working with you, we have identified the key support that you need to do your job more effectively and our updated offer is a result of these conversations.

Your membership gives you the tools and resources you need, a platform to have your voice heard and a strong and supportive network to help you do your job even better.

Our offer outlines what board members can expect from their membership and also supports the recommendations in The Welsh Government’s ‘The Right Stuff: Improving Housing Association Governance in Wales’.

I encourage you to take full advantage of the benefits your membership provides, many of which we have highlighted below.

We are by your side to help you to be brilliant.
