The Chartered Institute of Housing in Scotland (CIH Scotland) has confirmed the appointment of Donna Bogdanovic to its board.
Donna, who began her professional career as a planning and economic development consultant in Glasgow, joins the board from the Scottish Boarders Council where she has sat for 10 years.
She is also an active member of the board at Melville Housing Association in Midlothian and in 2018, undertook the Experienced Professional Route to Chartered Membership of the CIH.
Commenting on her appointment, Donna said: “I am thrilled to be joining the board of CIH Scotland and to have the opportunity to be involved in my professional body’s work campaigning on key housing issues, influencing policy, improving education and supporting housing professionals in the important work that they do.”
“This support is more critical than ever as we navigate the big challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing world and it’s an exciting time as CIH seeks to encourage an increased number of young people, as well as a more diverse range of individuals, into the housing profession.”
“I’m looking forward to making a positive difference and, along with the rest of the board, continuing to put housing’s contribution to the health and wellbeing of our community’s centre stage.”
Esther Wilson, chair of CIH Scotland added: “As the Scottish Government looks to create a new vision for Housing to 2040, we are delighted that Donna has agreed to join the CIH Scotland board at such an exciting and important time for housing.
“Donna’s knowledge and experience will be a huge asset as we look to the many challenges and opportunities ahead and we look forward to formally welcoming her to the board at our next meeting in October.”
