The Management Committee meet monthly and meetings normally last around two hours and no more than three. Sub – committees meet quarterly and these meetings are shorter. Committee members also attend training and conferences throughout the year in order to improve their skills and knowledge.
The Management Committee set the Strategic Direction of the organisation and oversee the work of the staff in implementing this. There is an annual programme which Committee follow in order to ensure that the various areas of business are dealt with at the most appropriate time of the year, such as budget and rent setting being discussed at meetings every year during December and January in order to be implemented from the start of each financial year. The Management Committee reviews the Business Plan annually and monitors quarterly throughout the year.
A few members of the Management Committee meet monthly with Committee members from other Housing Associations across Greater Easterhouse (Easterhouse Housing & Regeneration Alliance) to lobby and campaign at all political levels.
