ANCHO’s newly elected Chairperson, Mary Black, has welcomed six new members to its voluntary Board. ANCHO recently completed a formal Governance Review and is celebrating a successful recruitment campaign which will bring extensive new skills to the Board, adding to the skills and experience of existing Members.
Mary Black, Chair of ANCHO, said:
“I am delighted to have been elected as the Chairperson of ANCHO’s Board. This is an exciting time to be part of ANCHO, with significant investment being delivered as part of the partnership with Cairn Housing Group. This is improving tenants’ homes and we have a shared determination to provide the very best possible services to our communities.
“We are extremely grateful to Dr Sonya Campbell-Perry for the contribution she made to ANCHO as our Chairperson and we wish her well for the future. We are also thankful for the service of John Rodgers, Lesley Sheppard and Sian Hughes who have stepped down as Board members.
“We have everything in place as part of Cairn Housing Group to meet the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, and our six new colleagues will make a fabulous contribution to our work through 2020.”
Steven Travers, Leanne Stirling, Kelly Arrol, Nigel Fortnum, Colin Love and Michael Donnelly are joining the ANCHO Board and bring with them decades of collective experience in strategy development, property management, accountancy, digitisation, human resources, social enterprises and charity fundraising.
Cairn Housing Association Chairperson, Michael Allan, said:
“ANCHO’s Board is in great shape with six new members and Mary Black will lead the Association with a passion for promoting the interests of tenants and other customers. On behalf of everyone at Cairn Housing Group we are thankful to Sonya, John, Lesley and Sian for their service and we look forward to working with Mary and our new colleagues.”
ANCHO is committed to promoting additional opportunities for tenants and other customers to become Board members. Interested individuals are invited to contact ANCHO for an informal discussion about potential future board membership.
