  • Finance and accountancy
  • Income generation and fundraising

  • Digital transformation
  • Environmental change
  • Working internationally

As they are currently underrepresented on our board of directors, we strive to increase membership from:

  • Disabled people 
  • Trans or non-binary people 
  • People based outside the central belt of Scotland
  • Gaelic or Scots speakers
