ARCH AGM 2013 and seminar 02/10/2013

ARCH held its 2013 Annual General Meeting on 23 September.  The meeting approved the Annual Report and Accounts, which both reported another successful year for ARCH, during which membership has grown and our financial position continued to improve.
The meeting reappointed Councillor Paul Ellis, London Borough of Wandsworth, to serve as Chair, John Bibby, City of Lincoln Council was elected as Vice Chair and Paul Price from Tendring Districh Council was elected as Treasurer.



The AGM was preceded by a very successful seminar which explored how councils are taking forward the freedoms granted by self-financing, and the risks to business plans posed by welfare reform and changes in government rents policies.
In the first session, Innovation and Ambition, members heard from two councils undertaking exciting new initiatives to tackle housing needs in their areas. 
Presentations from Barabara Brownlee, Director of Housing at Thurrock and Melbourne Barrett, Executive Director for Housing & Regneration, Hammersmith & Fulham sparked off a lively discussion. 
In the second session, on Rents and Risks, Simon Smith, CIHConsult, explored the likely impact of the government's recent amendments to future rents policy, and Councillor Ian Wingfield, Deputy Leader of Southwark detailed what they are likely to mean for his council's housing.
Matthew Warburton, ARCH Policy Adviser, presented initial results from a survey of councils and ALMOs on the impact of the underoccupation penalty on rent arrears and council policies and procedures.
