National Council

SCoD members form what we call our National Council. The National Council consists of organisations that are full members of SCoD and are from all over Scotland. Members meet at National Council meetings, which take place three times each year. Each member organisation has one representative on the National Council.

Under law, our National Council “own” the organisation.  SCoD Board Members must be nominated from our National Council members. Board members have the ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of the organisation and ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and delivering the charitable outcomes for which it has been set up.  SCoD is a Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee and needs to meet both Charity and Company Law requirements.

We are recruiting for new Board members. The statutory duties of Board Members are:

  • To ensure that the organisation complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations
  • To ensure that the organisation pursues its objects as defined in its governing document
  • To ensure the organisation uses its resources exclusively achieve its objectives: the charity must not spend money on activities which are not included in its own objects, no matter how worthwhile or charitable those activities are
  • To contribute actively to the board of Trustee/Directors’ role in giving firm strategic direction to the organisation, setting overall policy, defining goals and setting targets and evaluating performance against agreed targets
  • To safeguard the good name and values of the organisation.
  • To ensure the effective and efficient administration of the organisation
  • To ensure the financial stability of the organisation
  • To protect and manage the property of the charity and to ensure the proper investment of the charity’s funds
  • To appoint, and give strategic direction to the Chief Officer and monitor his/her performance.

If you would like to know more about becoming a SCoD Board member, please contact our Chief Officer, Janis McDonald at janis@scod.org.uk or by telephone on 0141 248 2474.
