A virtual AGM, a new Chair and a new Board Member at DPHA
DPHA held its first virtual Annual General Meeting on 9 September 2020 via Zoom.
Shareholders received a warm welcome from Chairperson Gordon Laurie. Members present approved the Annual Financial statements and the Auditors, French Duncan were reappointed for 2020/21.
The election of the Board of Management saw the re-election of Anita Williamson, Ian Lennox and Ashley Stockley. Michelle Donnelly was appointed as a new Board member. Gordon Laurie, Craig Edward, Robert Murray, Matthew Reid, Melanie Cameron, Lorraine Lester, Jordan Henderson and Karen Johnson all continue as Board members.
Audrey Simpson and Jack Marshall, who retired at the AGM, were thanked for their continued service following their involvement as Statutory Appointees. Our Chairperson Gordon Lawrie also paid special thanks to Bob McDougall, another former Statutory Appointee, who retired during the year after serving on the Board for two years.
The Chairperson advised members that this would be his last AGM and he was planning to stand down and at a Board meeting following the AGM, Craig Edward was appointed the new DPHA Chairperson.
As the new Chairperson of DPHA’s Board of Management, Craig Edward said:
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the Board members and staff for what has been achieved under the stewardship of Gordon Laurie to strengthen the Association.
DPHA has always been special to me; my first home as a child was in a DPHA tenement. As a Clydebank resident, I know the excellent work that DPHA staff do each day to make a real difference for all our tenants and customers. There are great plans for DPHA with £5 million of investment planned for our homes over the next few years and wider role activities to support our community. A bright future lies ahead for DPHA and our tenants and customers.
