Scotland committee

Welcome to the Scotland committee

The IIA Scotland Committee is a volunteer group committed to supporting our members in Scotland.

The committee’s role is to:

  • Support and promote the interests of the membership in Scotland
  • Encourage and support the participation of members in Chartered IIA activities
  • Organise an annual programme of forums, events and activities to support the members
  • Promote the Chartered IIA and membership in Scotland
  • Serve as a communication channel between the members, central office and the Council

In Scotland, we are an active committee with a number of networking forums and special interest groups covering most roles, sectors and topics. We have an annual events programme which is relevant to live topics and emerging issues. We are here to support our members therefore if there is anything else you want us to consider, tell us.
