The Association of Independent Inventory Clerks (AIIC) is welcoming two new joint vice chairs to its board.
Danny Zane and Emma Glencross will take over from long-serving board member and former chairman Patricia Barber.
Both Zane and Glencross have previously served as council members and complaints officers for the AIIC, which is the UK’s largest membership organisation for regulated independent inventory clerks.
The joint chairs say that they are looking to carry on the great work of the previous administration, and boost the organisation’s membership, media presence and capacity for lobbying.
Zane comments: “I’m delighted to be taking on the role as joint chair alongside Emma. Having served as an AIIC board member for several years, I’m very passionate about this organisation and proud to represent the only body regulating independent inventory clerks in the UK.
“At a challenging time for the lettings industry, the application of independently compiled inventories has become more important than ever.”
Glencross adds: “Since its inception over 20 years ago, the remit of the AIIC has always been to highlight the benefits of independent inventories and raise standards in the growing lettings sector.
“This is something Danny and I hope to continue and improve during our tenure as vice chairs.”
Both new joint vice chairs released this statement: “We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Patricia Barber and the rest of the board members for all the great work they have done for the AIIC over the years.
“We’re going to hit the ground running and we’re really looking forward to engaging with our members over the coming months.”

Glencross is a former legal secretary and litigation clerk, who is now the Company Director of Professional Residential, a north London-based independent inventory firm, established in 2001.
Zane, having spent his career in the property industry, is now the Managing Director of My Property Inventories, a firm he made independent in 2010. It provides inventories across London and the surrounding areas.
His firm works with local councils, as well as a number of high profile letting agents, including Countrywide, Connells, Barnard Marcus, Knight Frank and Belvoir.
The AIIC has also announced that it will soon be looking to fill other positions within the council and is encouraging interested members to get in touch with its central office.
Congratulations to the two new joint vice chairs!
