18th February 2018
Following the retirement from the Board of Michael (Mike) Smyth, at the Board Meeting on 15 February, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Sarah Witchell as the new Chair of the Association's Board and Chair of the Housing Management Committee, with effect from Monday 19 February 2018.
Sarah, a Board Member since 2011, brings enormous experience to the role, having worked extensively as a solicitor in both private practice and public sector, providing corporate governance consultancy and involvement in range of third sector organisations.
Mike stepped down as Chair having reached the maximum nine year term of service at Board level, four as Treasurer and five as Chairman.
He has been an extremely committed and supportive Board member and Chairman, and we very much hope that his relationship with the Association can be continued as at Committee level.
On behalf of the Board, Chief Executive and Staff, we wish Sarah all the very best in her new role and extend our enormous gratitude and warm wishes to Mike
