After over 12 years as Treasurer of Scottish Continuity Group - Douglas has stepped down, handing over the Accounts Book and quill pen to Gordon Mackie. We are pleased to say that he has agreed to continue as a member and we have awarded him Honorary Life Member status in recognition of all the work he has done for us over the years.

For those who did not meet Douglas :-

Douglas is a Member of the Business Continuity Institute and before retiring was Group Business Continuity Manager (UK & Ireland) at Prudential plc. He was a Board Member of the Scottish Continuity Group since 2001 and Treasurer since 2004.

Douglas is the Chairman of Pickering's Gin.

Douglas is also the National Convener of the Traditional Music & Song Association of Scotland (TMSA) and performs throughout Scotland on the folk-singing scene.

I am sure that he will be tempted to attend any social occasions and will be seen at the annual RCE events as well.

The board wish him all the best and happy bowling!

The 2016 elections at the AGM and the new focus on events have revitalised the Scottish Continuity Group.

As Douglas Craik stepped down from the role of Treasurer, Gordon Mackie took over and will be working on member retention, recruitment and bringing back lapsed members.

Joyce Borthwick of Crescent Events (who has organised all SCG events in recent years) has joined the board to drive through our very exciting events in 2016 and beyond. Sandra Riddell of CSC has also joined the board and will assist Joyce and, in addition, will run Education and Learning streams.

Paul McGowan will continue to build relationships with the Scottish Resilience Development Centre. Expect a blog on the subject from Paul soon.

Nikola Brown of City of Edinburgh Council has agreed to join board with a focus on 3rd party relations

Jerry Marshall has agreed to join board with a focus on Resilient Communities, those with long memories will remember Jerry as the first Chairman of SCG in the early 1990s. We are really looking forward to having Jerry back on board.

George Berrich has been in meetings with the National Centre for Resilience and will post a blog with an update.

Richard MacLennan of the Law Society of Scotland is creating a group business plan, strategy, objectives and priorities paper. This will be published soon.

THE 2017 ANNUAL CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD ON THURSDAY 23 FEB 2017 - once again, we are delighted to announce that The Royal Bank of Scotland are hosting this in their stunning Gogarburn Conference Centre.

Proposals are under discussion for the 1st small event - ‘Starting Position on BC/DR’ on Tue 23rd Aug between 1-3 at the Law Society of Scotland.

As I am sure you will agree - these are exciting times for SCG and we will also be making more use of Social Media to keep members informed.
