I would like to offer myself for re-election to the Board. I have served on the Board for 3 years, the East Regional Committee for 15 years and on the Board’s Search Committee for 3 years. I enjoy participating in Membership activities and have often supported the Society at events organised by the Membership team.
I am a member of the Co-operative Party and was Treasurer of the Scotmid Co-op Party until it merged and became the Scottish Co-operative Party. I am a member of the Scottish Co-operative Women’s Guild Drumbrae branch of which I am Treasurer. I have been involved with our Co-operative for the last 53 years, joining as a Member when I was 17.
