CHA Board Member Application Form

Reasons for Applying and Experience

Current Relationship to Cunninghame Housing Association

If your application to join the Board of Management is successful we ask that you become a share member of the Association which requires the completion of a share membership application form and payment of £1. If this causes any issues for you we may be able to co-opt you onto the Board of Management which would still allow you to join but you would not have the same rights and responsibilities as full members.


I confirm that I have read the Cunninghame Housing Association’s Board of Management Role Description, Person Specification and Eligibility Form and that I am eligible to become a Board of Management member.
