CIH vice president and vice chair recognised in Queen's birthday honours


CIH vice president Alison Inman and governing board vice chair Geraldine Howley have both been awarded an OBE in the Queen's birthday honours list.

Alison, who is due to become CIH president later this year, was recognised for services to social housing tenants in Essex, while Geraldine, a former president who is now vice chair of CIH's governing board, was recognised for for services to housing, young people and the community in Bradford.

The pair were among a number of high-profile housing figures to receive recognition in this year's list, which was announced yesterday (Friday 16 June). Tony Stacey, chief executive of South Yorkshire Housing Association, and Chan Kataria, chief executive of EMH Group and CIH fellow, were also awarded OBEs.

CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat said: "CIH was delighted to see Alison and Geraldine recognised in this year’s Queen’s birthday honours list. These awards are well-deserved recognition for the years of commitment and service that they have shown in their work in housing and beyond."

She added: "Congratulation also to Tony Stacey and Chan Kataria as well as to a number of other housing professionals recognised - these awards mark the significant contribution they have made to housing and their local communities across their careers."
