ARCH Exchange 20/08/2015

We'd like to take a moment to remind our members of the benefits of ARCH Exchange. The Exchange gives senior employees working in the stock retained sector a simple way to pool their knowledge and experience, and to reduce duplicated efforts.


Members can use the Exchange to ask for examples of how other councils have tackled a particular situation, to circulate questionnaires, and to share your committee or policy reports and much more. It's just another benefit of our membership...


How ARCH Exchange works


Members can email their enquiry, questionnaire or the documents they're willing to share to We'll then send out details to the main ARCH contact in each organisation.

If you can assist with an ARCH Exchange enquiry, you can respond directly to the member organisation. We provide contact details with the enquiry and copying your response back to the Exchange will enable us to maintain a library of responses for future enquiries and to inform our policy work.

Sharing reports


If you have recently written a committee or policy report that you would be willing to share with other ARCH members to help other councils who may be working on the same issue, you can email it to the Exchange. We'll post it in the member area of the ARCH website and tell other members it's available in the next mailing.


Our members are encouraged to make use of the ARCH Exchange facility. Sharing information in this way through the network of over 60 stock retained councils could save time and effort in developing new policies and approaches in your own council and help promote best practice across the stock retained sector.
