Would you like to represent Scotland on the NAWRA committee?

Calling all NAWRA members in Scotland – could you be a rep on the NAWRA committee?

Our current rep Craig Samuel at City of Edinburgh Council is stepping down after many years service so we now have two vacancies on the Committee for Scottish reps.

As a rep, the main requirement is to attend Committee meetings which are held four times a year and last up to two hours. These are held virtually and typically discuss –

  • Communications and publicity
  • Equality and diversity
  • Policy and Campaigns
  • Finance
  • Plans for future conferences

You can see previous minutes on the website

If you want further involvement, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in campaigns, consultation responses, delivering workshops, but it is also fine if you don’t have so much time to commit to this. In Scotland, there are added opportunities to engage with the Scottish Government on devolved issues too.

Being on the Executive Committee of a national organisation is great experience, and you will be fully supported by the rest of the Committee.

If you might be interested but want to find out a bit more please email our vice chair Daphne Hall at daphne@nawra.org.uk who would be happy to have a chat.

And this is also an opportunity to send our heartfelt thanks to Craig who has done such an amazing job in the role particularly overseeing some of the development of the devolved benefits.
