Elim Housing is led by a voluntary board of 12 members. The Board meets at least four times a year and its role is to oversee all our activities including monitoring performance, planning for the future and agreeing policy.
Our Board members bring a diverse range of skills and experience in all the key areas of governance, financial expertise, strategy and operational management. They act independently and provide their time and services on an unpaid basis. Board members are elected by our shareholders who each ‘own’ a share in Elim Housing. These shares do not bring any financial benefit. Board members serve a term of three years and can then be re-elected. They can only serve a maximum of three terms.
Board members regularly come to our Thornbury head office and, from time to time, they also visit housing projects as a way of keeping in touch with our work.
The Board recently elected a new chair person, Graham Russell. Graham has significant experience in the public and voluntary sectors and joined us at a time of change within the housing sector.
