As a co-operative, the majority of the power and influence must be with members who are in a trading relationship with SCH. These are student housing co-operatives across the UK, and they have 75% of all votes at general meetings of the society and on all resolutions. The student housing co-operative members also elect up to 8 members of their board (no more than 2 board members can come from any one student housing co-op).
Investors in the 2019 (and future) share issues (and other members who support aims and objects who might be admitted by the Board) have 25% of the voting power at AGMs and on resolutions, and elect up to 4 members of the board. Note that 25% of voting power is the limit for non-user members under FCA guidance.
The Board of Directors also has the power to co-opt two other individuals to the Board for their skills and expertise.
