This is a significant role at CIH. The vice president will work closely with Elly Hoult, president-elect for 2024, and is expected to succeed Elly after her term in office from CIH's annual general meeting (AGM) in 2025.

Jill Murray BA FCIH | CIH president (2023-2024)

The housing sector plays an essential role in society and in our economy.  Being the CIH president provides you with an opportunity to promote this critical role and the importance of housing professionals who can deliver positive change to the lives of individuals, communities, and wider society. The professionalisation agenda has been a massive focus for the housing sector over recent years but it’s something that I have always been incredibly passionate about. My presidential campaign, Be EPIC, has afforded me the opportunity to promote the core attributes and characteristics which we should all aspire to meet and that support us to become competent professionals. Think about what is important to you and how as the CIH president, you could shine a light and bring focus to the issue which you are really passionate about. I would like to encourage members to apply to become the next vice president, so that you too can have the opportunity to make a positive impact on our sector.
