#cihvp Steve Stride - @CIH elections

These are challenging times to be delivering Social Housing in London. I have never really paid much attention to Chartered Institute of Housing elections in the past, apart from when my old colleague at Hyde, Jan gave it a go a couple of yeas ack.  But having the right leadership matters more than ever right now.
I was pleased to see that Steve Stride of Poplar Harca has put himself  in harms way and is up for election as Vice President. I don't know him well, but I know him a lot better by his works. He has worked passionately for one of the most  deprived communities and gives the kind of leadership that inspires others to do the same. He is the kind of leader who reminds us what we came into housing for in the first place. (Apart from the glamour, wealth and envy of our friends)
If you are a housing professional with a vote in the CIH  election you could do a lot worse than give Mr Stride a whirl.
