Thursday, July 3, 2014

Thank you to all who joined us in Cardiff for our annual conference held jointly with GCG and SPNHC and our AGM. We hope you enjoyed the conference and we look forward to seeing you in Bristol for NatSCA 2015!

A New Memorandum of Understanding

The meeting also saw the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between SPNHC, GCG and NatSCA. You can find the text of this agreement online here.

Changes to the NatSCA Committee

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Paolo Viscardi as the new chair of NatSCA, succeeding Clare Brown. We would like to thank Clare for all of her excellent work as chair over the past three years. We would also like to thank all of our outgoing committee members for their contributions to NatSCA and continued support. An enormous thank you to Nicola Newton, Tony Irwin, Beulah Garner, Katherine Andrew, David Notton, Claire Mellish and Simon Moore. Many thanks also to Paul Brown for his hard work as secretary and welcome our new secretary, Roberto Portela Miguez.

Although we are reducing the size of the committee, we are looking to develop new committee-supporting roles and welcome volunteers who may be able to support our activities. If you would like to get involved, please email us at info@natsca.org telling us a bit about the your skills and interests.
