Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

17Power to appoint new committee member

(1)The Housing Corporation may by order appoint a person to be a committee member of a registered housing association—

(a)in place of a person removed by the Corporation,

(b)where there are no members of the committee, or

(c)where the Corporation is of opinion that it is necessary for the proper management of the association's affairs to have an additional committee member.

(2)A person may be so appointed whether or not he is a member of the association and, if he is not, notwithstanding that the rules of the association restrict appointment to members.

(3)A person appointed under this section shall hold office for such period and on such terms as the Corporation may specify and on the expiry of the appointment the Corporation may renew the appointment for such period as it may specify; but this does not prevent a person appointed under this section from retiring in accordance with the rules of the association.

(4)A person appointed under this section is entitled—

(a)to attend, speak and vote at any general meeting of the association and to receive all notices of and other communications relating to any general meeting which a member of the association is entitled to receive, and

(b)to require a general meeting of the association to be convened within 21 days of a request to that effect made in writing to the committee of the association.
