Scottish Communities CAN’s first national gathering and AGM – report on annual general meeting

Our first Annual General Meeting took place on 6th March 2013. At the meeting, we presented our annual report to our members – you can read the report here – Scottish Communities CAN annual report (PDF download 248 KB).

This was our first annual general meeting, and so an important part of the business was to elect our Steering Group. We invited nominations from our members, and 8 community group representatives were nominated to join the Steering Group. All nominations were accepted and our new Steering Group members are

Name Organisation
Pat Abel Transition Edinburgh South
Lucy Gillie South Seeds
Suzy Goodsir Greener Kirkcaldy
Karen Hilton Towards Zero Carbon Bute
Emma Margrett Comrie Development Trust
Kelly McIntyre Fintry Development Trust
Philip Revell Sustaining Dunbar
Jo Wright Lambhill Stables

Our first Steering Group meeting will be held later this month and our first tasks will be to elect a Chair, Vice-Chair and Membership Secretary, and to co-opt additional members.  There is one more place available on the Steering Group for a community group representative, and 3 open to co-opted representatives of Associate Members.
