The 94th AGM will take place at 2pm on Saturday 4th November 2023 in Kelvin Hall, Glasgow.

Volunteering with the RSCDS
RSCDS, like so many organisations, runs effectively thanks to a vast number of volunteers who are passionate about Scottish country dancing, and willing to give their time.  Over the last couple of years, RSCDS office staff, Board members, and volunteers have continued to work, and make decisions, using virtual meetings. Although opportunities for ‘face to face’ meetings are now being welcomed, input through remote attendance at RSCDS meetings, wherever you are located in the world, will undoubtedly continue to be a part of our future to support our sustainability agenda.
