The Residential Communities Council (RCC) Update

, |

2 min read

Following discussions at ARC Chapter meetings, and at recent ARC Annual Conferences, a majority of ARC members expressed the need for an industry representative body, an NPC that will be governed by industry members, and managed operationally by the Association of Residential Communities (ARC).

The Residential Communities Council (RCC) has developed an MOI as its founding document, and some of the ARC founding members, industry leaders, and ARC Chapter leaders appointed the founding directors (incorporators) during 2018/2019.

The MOI was amended at the Annual General meeting in 2020. At the second Annual General Meeting of the RCC, which took place in September 2020, the directors were re-elected, and Chris Weston was elected to the board.

The RCC will formulate, deliberate, and express the united voice, and be the representative body of the Residential Community Industry (RCI), including: all aspects of interaction between the industry and government (whether national, provincial or local), or any other statutory bodies; as well as interaction with other public or private individuals, entities, or institutions with regard to matters which may be of concern or interest to the RCI or RCC.

Furthermore, it will establish, regulate and sustain national working committees (NWC) and regional working committees (RWC) on behalf of its members throughout the industry, to carry out the functions identified by the members as being consistent with those of a self-regulating industry. These regional working committees will nominate their respective members to serve on the board of the RCC. Regional working committees have already been established in all regions.

The RCC will also ensure the effective representation to government at all levels, as well as civil society, as the single voice of the RCI, and establish and implement appropriate policy frameworks and policies for the RCI. Essentially, when we, as an industry, need to make representation to any level of government on specific issues, make comment on proposed legislation, or join any legal matters, it will be channelled through the RCC.

It is recommended that all current and new ARC members become members of the RCC.  Also, as new members join ARC, or existing members renew, a separate RCC membership of 15% of the ARC annual membership fee will be added to the invoice. These funds will be transferred to the RCC account to be used to carry out its objectives.

Members are asked to contact Jeff on 083 444 4176 or email at jeff@hoasupport. co.za should more detailed information be required.
