Since TIS launched their new membership services earlier in November, there has been a huge uptake from tenants, landlords and other interested organisations who are making the most of the wide range of benefits available.
TIS re-evaluated the membership services to provide even better value for money to supporters of TIS. TIS members will now receive a wide range of benefits, including reduced conference, training and consultancy rates and full access to the members only area on the new TIS website.
Hillcrest Housing Association are the newest TIS Landlord Members. Carol Petrie, the Tenant Participation Officer commented “We have joined TIS as we have always valued their independent advice and guidance for our tenants, and even more so now with tenant scrutiny being developed. TIS allows us to hear what is happening surrounding tenant scrutiny in all areas of Scotland and gives us an opportunity to share examples of good practice which is great for staff learning. With guidance from TIS, we are looking forward to developing our framework for scrutiny together with our tenants. An added bonus is that we can access reduced rates for conferences and publications – which means we save rent payers money!”
Ilene Campbell, Director of TIS said “We are delighted with the uptake of our new membership services. The new membership packages provide an excellent resource and toolkit to develop your tenant participation and scrutiny practice. We hope that other organisations are also inspired to join TIS and make a difference”
