What is the Board responsible for?

The Board makes strategic decisions which guide the way that Solon operates.  The Board meets every two months to discuss matters.  The senior management team and staff at Solon report to the Board on how well Solon is doing.

Who is on the Board?

The Board is currently made up of 10 non-executive members and up to 2 co-optees. They are chosen for their expertise and experience in certain areas, for example housing or finance.  The Board also has one resident member who is elected by residents. Board members are easy to talk to and happy to discuss their work. You can contact them via the Solon telephone number.

Residents are strongly encouraged to get involved in the decision making at Solon. New resident volunteers are always welcome.

Other Committees

There are two committees which specialise in different areas of Solon's business: 

The Audit and Finance Committee
This Committee is made up of Board members and looks at the financial side of Solon's business.  It makes key decisions about how Solon manages its money to stay financially viable.  The Committee meets four times a year.

Customer Service Improvement Committee (CSIC)
The CSIC is a key group of people made up of Board members, residents and staff.  The group meets six times a year to look at improvement to Solon's services.  The committee has played a vital role in tracking our response to the Audit Commission visit in July 2009 and are now keeping track of our progress towards 3 stars.

The CSIC also specialises in Equality and Diversity and Resident Involvement at Solon.
