SYLA videoconferences AGM
The Scottish Young Lawyers Association is to videoconference its Annual General Meeting this year to encourage as many members as possible to attend.
To be held on Tuesday 3 August at 6pm, the AGM will take place in Glasgow at Burness's offices, 120 Bothwell Street, and in Edinburgh at Digby Brown's offices, 160 Causewayside, Newington, with the two venues being linked by videoconference.
All SYLA members are welcome, as is anyone interested in becoming a member. Membership is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate law students, trainees and solicitors up to 10 years qualified.
The meeting will report on the major achievements of the last year and elect a new committee for the year ahead. Four executive positions – President, Vice President, treasurer and secretary – and six non-executive committee positions will be open to nominations, which can be made on the evening.
Any enquiries regarding the AGM, becoming a member or a committee member should be sent to email@example.com .
