Message from Our Chair – Kate Pearlman-Shaw
As a sector we continue to operate in challenging times and effective governance and strong leadership has never been more important. Our Board of Management receive no remuneration for the work they do but as committed volunteers bring together a wealth of skills, knowledge and experience and are committed to working with Senior Officers to find ways to continually improve how the Association operates.
We have undertaken a major Governance review in 2015 based on the National Housing Federations (NHF) Code of Governance which has ensured that we have positioned ourselves to meet the Governance and Viability standards and requirements from our Regulator, the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). I am delighted that we have strengthened Tenant and Resident Involvement in Governance and am excited about the role our Tenant Scrutiny Panel will play in co-regulation.
I am proud to Chair LJHA, and along with our Chief Executive, lead an organisation that puts Tenants and Residents at the heart of everything we do.
