Membership of the SCA continues to grow and to date we have a total of 245 members. Our intention is to ensure we are as representative of the entire sector as possible, therefore we would encourage all current members to please spread the word. You can find out more about membership at: www.scottisharchives.org.uk/membership.

There have been a number of staff changes in the SCA, with Benjamin Bennett leaving after five years with the organisation. He has been replaced as Communications and Operations Officer by Robert Wright. Nic Rue has also joined the office as our Administration and Events Assistant. Nic’s contribution will be very welcome as we have a number of events and developments coming up in the autumn. “I would like to say thank you to everyone I’ve met so far for making me feel very welcome. I’m delighted have the opportunity to join this team and am looking forwards to contributing to the wonderful variety of projects that the council supports and runs.”

Report & Financial Statements
We continue to be grateful to the Scottish Government for providing a core funding grant of £140,000 per annum. Whilst SCA reports expenditure and delivery of activities against our annual Business Plan to Scottish Government, the organisation is an independent Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.
With the end of the financial year in March 2016, the Council’s accounts will soon be made available to members for review. Expenditure to date for this Quarter is in line with the Business Plan’s projections.
