Board of Management
MHA has a Board which allows a maximum of 15 members. The Board has two sub-committees to which it delegates responsibilities for Audit and Risk, and Staffing. The Board meets a minimum of 8 times per year, the Audit and Risk Committee meets a minimum of 4 times a year and the Staffing sub-committee meets a minimum of two times a year.
Of the current Board, 3 members are tenants, one further member is a local resident, whilst one is employed locally. The Board therefore has a very good insight into what is happening in the local area and what the feeling is across the wider customer base in terms of service delivery.
The Board of Management is responsible for:
- Providing effective leadership, control and direction
- Exercising good governance across all of our activities
- Ensuring we achieve our aims and objectives
- Ensuring that we comply with all legislative and regulatory requirements
To help the Board oversee Muirhouse Housing Association and ensure we meet all our legal and statutory requirements, we also have an External Auditor and an Internal Auditor appointed.
Currently RSM are our External Auditor and BDO are our Internal Auditor.
