Running the Association

There is a board of trustees, who are responsible for administering and running the affairs of the association day-to-day. All are volunteers, who give their time freely to the association. The trustees meet 5 - 6 times throughout the year.

Further pages within this section of the site contain details of the organisation, and how to contact all the volunteers who are involved with running the SBA and its Local Area Associations throughout the Scottish mainland and islands.
