CHISEL is run by a Board of Management, which has ultimate responsibility for all our affairs. The Board meets a minimum of 5 times a year. Its membership is made up of CHISEL tenants and individual members, with a minimum of a third of places reserved for tenants. All Board members must also be members of CHISEL.
In addition to the Board, there are three committees:
Tenants Scrutiny Committee (previously called the Operational Scrutiny Committee), which meets 4 times a year and reports to the Board. The Tenants Scrutiny Committee is made up of members of the Board and tenants appointed by Board, although it may co-opt other members to join it if it chooses.
Audit & Risk Committee deals with finance and compliance matters. It meets four times per year.
The Remuneration & Nominations Committee deals with employment matters, and membership of Board and Committees. It meets 2 times per year.
