SCDA National Conference and AGM

SCDA National Conference and AGM

This will take place as usual at the Stirling Court Hotel (previously Stirling University Management Centre) on Saturday 19th November.  I am trying to make the event interesting, informative and fun and am introducing some drama related events which should have a broad appeal.  This will include talks by: –

Paul Fowler (Chairman of GoDA). Paul, is well known and respected in SCDA and will talk on the process of adjudication, pointers for successful productions, and how GoDA trains and supervises its member adjudicators.

Citizens’ Theatre Director.  The Citizens Theatre Glasgow has agreed to provide one  of their directors who will talk about direction from a professional viewpoint and the work of the Citizens generally.

Each session will be followed by a Q&A session that will allow discussion of the issues raised. These speakers are now confirmed.

The programme is shaping up as follows, but some detail and timings could change:-

Friday 18 November

Social Dinner – early birds will get together for dinner and a chat – I presume some alcohol will be consumed (perhaps more by some than others).

Saturday 19 November

11:00 AM       AGM.

11:45 AM       Open forum. A discussion on festivals and any other matters relevant to the activities of the association generally. I will be asking you to submit matters you might like to raise for discussion some time before the meeting, although there will be scope for ad hoc questions too.
