Tracey Martin, the former Seniors Minister, has been appointed to represent residents on the governing group of the Retirement Villages Association. RVA announced the appointment this week and said it was meeting its “blueprint” commitment to roll out a range of improvements for residents in retirement villages. The Association represents the owners and operators of retirement villages.
Martin has been appointed an independent member of the association’s executive committee, a role designed to provide retirement village residents with an effective voice in the sector’s governance, the association said.
The appointment comes amidst the recommendations from Retirement Commissioner Jane Wrightson regarding an urgent review of the Retirement Villages Act and associated regulations.
