Julie Fadden has been elected as the new vice president of the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) after winning a members vote earlier this month.
Julie will become vice president for 2015/16 on 21 May, subject to approval at the CIH Annual General Meeting (AGM), where she will represent the housing sector on a national level. She will be expected to take up the role of president in 2016.
Julie said, “I am honoured to have been chosen to represent the CIH membership as vice president and would like to thank all those who voted for me. There is much to do to tackle the housing crisis and deliver for those in need, and I want to help in any way I can to highlight the difference we can make to the lives of those we serve and campaign for positive change.”
Julie will replace current vice president Geraldine Howley, chief executive of Bradford-based housing group Incommunities, who will take up the role of CIH president at the AGM on 21 May.
The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) is the professional body for those working in the housing profession in the UK, with over 22,000 members.
