What is the difference between being a general 'Member' of Gardeen Housing Association and being a 'Management Committee Member'?

Gardeen Housing Association's membership is made up of residents from the Gardeen area.  Any resident of Gardeen can become a general member of the Association as long as they are 16 or over. Life membership costs £1 and you will remain a member as long as you reside within the area.

The benefits of membership are that you can vote at the Annual General Meeting of the Association and possibly be voted on to the Management Committee.  By being a member you can influence how the Association operates and play a major part in making decisions on how to continue the management of the area.

How do I become a 'Management Committee Member'?

To become a Management Committee Member you must first become a general member of the Association by completing a small form and paying £1 (as noted above). 

The usual way to become a Management Committee Member, is to be elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM).  To stand for election you will need to fill out a Nomination Form and deliver this to the Association's Office at least 7 days before the AGM.  At the AGM your nomination will be raised.  If there are more nominations than available places then there will be an election and all the members present will vote for each person.  The person with the most votes will be elected.

Alternatively, if you decide you wish to become a Management Committee Member during the year you can be invited to fill any Casual Vacancies that may exist.  You would however need to be formally elected at the following AGM.

In addition to the above method of joining, the Management Committee may ask to co-opt you onto the Management Committee if you have specific skills and knowledge that you could contribute to the running of the Association.

What does a Management Committee Member do?

The Management Committee is made up of Members and includes a Chairperson, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.  These positions are filled annually after every AGM.

The Management Committee makes all the important decisions.  Staff are employed by the Management Committee to act on these decisions and to carry out the day to day work of the Association.

We want to give you a chance to get your voice heard and stay up to date with what is going on in your area. We need you to help us achieve this.

How often does the Management Committee meet?

The Management Committee meets once a month and deals with the strategic and governance work of the Association.  This includes the Finance & Staffing work of the Association, with the monitoring of all the Association's finances and every quarter there is a report from Property Services, which deals with specific areas of the Association's work, including rent matters, allocations, estate management, maintenance etc.
