    Code of Governance

    Code Of Governance

    IDS has adopted the principles of the National Housing Federation Code of Governance. However, when the Board resolves that members with specific skills and expertise essential to the Board, having served nine years, continue to make a significant and vital contribution then up to three such members can be re-elected but subject to annual review. These measures are designed to ensure the introduction of new Board members continues whilst maintaining an element of continuity and the participation of highly valued and skilled members.
