On Board for Sport

The Scottish Sports Association (SSA) will be holding an event in partnership with the Professional Bodies Forum on 14th March 2019 to highlight some of the opportunities to join the Boards of Scottish governing bodies of sports.

This is a chance for SGBs to network with skilled professionals and demonstrate how they can gain experience in new and dynamic areas, continue their professional development and learn new aptitudes while using their existing skills to contribute to sporting organisations.

The event will include presentations from current Board members to outline what roles can involve, how they have helped to make a difference to Scottish sport and how they have personally benefitted from their experiences, as well as the opportunity for attendees to ask questions and learn more about how to get involved.

Joe FitzPatrick MSP, Minister for Public Health, Sport and Wellbeing will open the event, highlight the opportunities and benefits of sharing skills across sectors and launch materials on the importance of independent and diverse Board members.

Our thanks also go to Brewin Dolphin for hosting and to Meraki Talent for sponsoring drinks and snacks for the event.

5:30 - 7:30pm

Venue: Brewin Dolphin, 144 Morrison Street, Edinburgh EH3 8BR
