"ScoutFest (Scotland)– our festival for adults will take place at Scout Adventures Fordell Firs on 15-16 September 2018. ScoutFest is going to be something very special for our adult members. We’re planning a whole weekend of skills development opportunities, training, programme ideas, social events, camping, and loads more! Scouts Scotland AGM (Annual General Meeting - similar to BSA May meeting - Annual Report, Board elections, major issues) We will also be hosting our AGM at ScoutFest – our first AGM where all adult members in Scotland will have the opportunity to vote on any constitutional decisions and Board elections. At our AGM in November, the Scottish Council voted to extend its membership to all adult members of Scouts Scotland. The Scottish Council is the overarching governance body representing members across Scotland. It was previously a relatively small body made up of select roles and nominees from National, Regional, and District level. Decisions made by The Council affect all members, so it is crucial that it is truly reflective of our membership. All 11,500 of our adult members will now have the opportunity to take part in consultations, decision-making, and elections. This means that our governance is now more accessible, transparent and democratic. As part of the Scottish Council all adult members of Scouts Scotland will receive information about the AGM and elections. We will do this by email, so please make sure that your email details are kept up to date on Compass so that you can receive this information." https://www.scouts.scot/news-events/news/scoutfest-2018/
