Martyn Hale is a new member of the CIH Professional Standards Committee
Our Director of Care and Support Martyn Hale is a new member of the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) Professional Standards Committee.
He is one of six new members across the housing sector who have recently been appointed.
As part of his role, Martyn will be one of the 12 independent members who ensure that the professional standards of the CIH are maintained.
The Professional Standards Committee meet four times a year to review the professional code, complaints about members and policies.
Martyn said: “I have been a member of the CIH since I was 18 and Fellow since 1997. They advertised for new members and I felt the time was right to get involved.
“There was an application and interview process to be on the committee and I’m delighted that I’ve been successful.
“The continued professionalisation of housing is important. My hope is that I can offer something back to a profession that has offered me so many opportunities. It also resonates with an inherent belief I have in fairness and the importance of integrity.
“As part of my role, I will also be looking at the CIH’s approach to equality and diversity – this is something that is very dear to me.”
Martyn will be a member of CIH’s Professional Standards Committee for the next three years.
