Scotland - Committee members

The committee comprises: the 4 Section Chairs; the Conference Organising Group Chair; and the Co-opted Field Officer. The Region Chair can nominate a Regional Treasurer to also be on the committee or take on this role his or herself. The elected Region Chair will serve for two years, running from a month after the annual business meeting. The functions of the Region Committee are:

  • to keep members informed of science education issues in Scotland;
  • to provide and publicise programmes of events in each Section and the Scottish Annual Conference;
  • to ensure ASE in Scotland is represented on national bodies;
  • to seek and collate member views on science educations matters and use this to inform national debate;
  • to provide information for the website;
  • to monitor the ASE in Scotland budget.

The committee will meet twice a year, once at the Scottish Annual Conference and once in early September. Most committee business will be conducted using 'virtual' methods as agreed by the committee. In January there will be a Section development workshop of around three hours for Section officers and other Section committee members. Elections for Chair will be electronic, open to all members in Scotland and administered by ASE HQ.  Election results will be posted on both the UK news and Scotland ASE websites.
