Members will be aware that Alan and Morag Imrie have now moved back to Scotland although they will be returning frequently until the end of the year. Alan has been Session Clerk for some 11 years, and has seen us through two vacancies and worked with three Ministers during that time. Among Alan’s many achievements during his tenure has been the successful negotiation of the move to charity status with the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator. He gave up as Session Clerk at the Session meeting on 27 September.
The Session invited the Deputy Session Clerk, Peter Esslemont, to take over the role of Session Clerk with effect from 27 September, and Peter accepted this invitation. We wish Peter every success in his new role, and look forward very much to working with him.
