It’s been quite a year, Tenant Advisory Group chairwoman Noeline Monsef writes.
As 2020 comes to a close so too does my tenure as Tenant Advisory Group chair.
It has been an enjoyable and fulfilling two years and I make way for two very capable people. Irmgaard van Shouten and Dave Wilson will act as joint chair, taking the lead of the group for half a term each. No deputy is required under these terms.
Despite the time lost to Covid-19 I feel overall we have achieved several milestones, including the successful and ongoing Warm and Dry initiative, and the social activities that included bus trips to Kaikoura and high teas.
A highlight was the wonderful Art Exhibition, at which so many talented tenants were able to reach the general public through their art. TAG manned the event, and was proud to promote it.
The new year brings with it many new opportunities, including the always competitive garden awards and the Housing Heroes, a TAG-led award. TAG is also working with an electricity bulk tender business on a pilot project to help tenants cut their power bills. There will be more about this potentially very exciting development — including how to take part — early next year.
As ever, we would like to welcome ne members to TAG. Please take a moment and consider applying. You can learn more about TAG here:
Have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
