Mainstay’s Clark rejoins IRPM Board
David Clark, Principal at Mainstay Group and a Fellow of the Institute of Residential Property Managers, has been elected to the board of governors. David was a founding governor at IRPM back in 2002 but left after a year to take up the chairmanship of ARMA.
He rejoins at an exciting time for the growing Institute who now boast more then 2000 individual members and more than 370 exam candidates a year. IRPM works closely with the RICS on the AssocRICS qualification and has recently launched its interactive learning resource.
‘I was closely involved in the formation of the IRPM and setting the first examination syllabus,’ says David, ‘the institute remains close to my heart and I am genuinely thrilled with the success that it has achieved. I am looking forward to contributing to its continued growth and further innovation.’
David believes that the IRPM is set to become increasingly important in light of ARMA’s announcement of a proposed route to industry self regulation, ARMA Q.
‘Any form of self regulation is likely to require principals and senior staff in leasehold management to demonstrate proper training and qualification as part of the regulatory framework and the push towards the professionalisation of the industry. I continue to sit on Council and to chair the Practice Committee at ARMA and hope that I can maintain the strong links between the two organisations at this exciting time.’
