ARCH Tenants' Group

The ARCH Tenants' Group is made up of tenant representatives from ARCH member authorities across England. It is a sub-group of the ARCH executive board, and held its inaugural meeting in November 2008. Its quarterly meetings since have been well attended.

The chair and vice chair of the Tenants' Group are the resident representative on the ARCH executive board (they are also Directors on the ARCH Executive Board) and act as a liaison point between the two.

Executive board minutes and Tenants' Group minutes are shared between the two bodies via the members' only area on the ARCH website, to which Tenants' Group members have access.
Residents have been recruited from across England to ensure the ARCH Tenants' Group fully reflects ARCH's membership across the country.
