Our Committee

West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative is fully mutual with charitable status. In a fully mutual housing co-operative all tenants are members, and only tenants can be members.

Membership gives the right to:

  • Vote for the Management Committee
  • Stand for election to the Management Committee
  • Attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and vote on appropriate items
  • Attend emergency or special general meetings

WWHC is run by a Committee of unpaid voluntary members, who are elected by the members. All Management Committee members are tenants in West Whitlawburn (with one exception currently).

They control the Co-operative’s business by:

  • Setting the policies to be followed by the staff
  • Making sure that the staff carry out the legal and financial responsibilities of the Co-operative
  • Allowing staff to carry out the decisions of the Management Committee and run the day-to-day business of the Co-operative

Committee Members

Management Committee members standing down and seeking re-election can be elected at the Annual General Meeting, as can new Management Committee members. Any member joining Committee during the year will be co-opted or fill a casual vacancy until the next AGM.
