A shareholder is a member of CCHA. Their name and address is entered into our Share Register and each share member is entitled to hold one share, which will have a nominal value of £1 and will carry no right to interest, dividend or bonus, save for any permitted by paragraph 1 of Schedule 1 to the Housing Act 1996. 

The Board of Management can allow, at its discretion, any individual person to become a shareholder providing they are not:  

  • a minor – as determined by the Board;  
  • a person who has been expelled as a shareholder, unless authorised by a resolution at a general meeting;  
  • an employee of the association or an employee of a group member;  
  • a person who has been removed by the board in accordance with rule D5;  
  • a person in respect of whom a registered medical practitioner who is treating that person gives a written opinion to the effect that that person has become physically or mentally incapable of acting as a board member and may remain so for more than three months;  
  • a person in respect of whom, by reason of that person’s mental health, a court makes an order which wholly or partly prevents that person from personally exercising any powers or rights which that person would otherwise have; 
  • a person who is disqualified from acting as a director of a company for any reason, or has been convicted of an indictable offence (in particular any offence involving dishonesty or any offence involving imprisonment whether suspended or not); 
  • a person who is a director of a company which has gone into insolvency; or 
  • a person disqualified under Section 178 of the Charities Act 2011 from being a charitable trustee.
