Leadership.

The Management and Governance Structure of Mace

The Board
A voluntary Management Committee (Board) is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is responsible for overall supervision, the direction of the organisation and the maintenance of management standards, as ascribed in the Co-op’s Governance rules. The Board is made up of a maximum of 15 and a minimum of 7 members.

In addition to the Management Committee, there are 7 Sub-committees that are responsible for overseeing the strategic functional areas of the Co-op under the delegated authority of the Board.  Each of the Sub-Committees is chaired by a member of the Management Board. The Committees report to the Board.

The Sub-Committees
See the Organisational Chart for the details of the 7 Sub-Committees and their functions, under delegated authority of the Board.

Organisational Structure

Mace Housing Co-operative is registered as a Friendly society under the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts.

A voluntary Management Committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and is responsible for overall supervision and direction of the organisation and maintaining management standards. In addition to the Management Committee, there are 7 sub-committees, which any member of the Co-op can join. These are Allocations, Property development, Employment, Repairs & Maintenance, Publicity, Disputes, Rent & Finance.

The Executive Management Team

The Co-op went further to create an independent Executive Management Team, led by the Chief Executive, supported by the Director of Operations, other functional Managers and staff. This was done to shake off the negative image that Housing Co-operatives had at the time. The introduction of a professional Executive management team at the helms of Operations, helped Mace to grow from strength to strength, whilst several Housing Co-operatives closed their operations.

The Executive Management Team is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Co-op under the delegated authority of the Board and reports to it on a monthly basis.
