Barrhead Housing Association holds successful AGM on 15th September 2015


The Association held its 29th Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 15th September 2015 at the Barrhead Foundry. Members and invited guests heard what progress the organisation had made over the last year around growth, performance and financial management. A further healthy surplus was reported along with an increase in the organisations cash position. A review of the last 10 years was also presented by the Chief Executive to confirm the strengthening financial position, growth of the Association and improved services to tenants for the organisation over recent years. Early results from the Social Housing Charter for 2014/15 were also confirmed against Scottish average figures ahead of the publication of the Association’s Performance Report, due out in October 2015. The AGM included the election of Governing Board members including two with over 9-year service, and members approved a new external auditor. The AGM included prize giving for our good neighbour award – to Mr and Mrs Sweeney of Barrhead – and to our overall garden competition winner Mrs Boyle of Neilston. There were runner up winners for good neighbour to Mr Forbes of Barrhead and for the garden competition winner including Mr Dunwoodie, Mr McCowan, and Mrs Sweeney of Barrhead and to Miss Bogan of Neilston. 11 other local residents received vouchers to make improvements to their gardens for next year. The Association will mark its 30th anniversary during 2016.
