It incorporates a greater emphasis on publicising and promoting our sport, continued support for club development, a wider range of services for members and opportunities for them to develop their skills, new Regional Development Officer positions and a significant enhancement of our ability to cope with governance matters.

The 2016 SOA AGM was held at Crathies Kirk Hall following on from the highly successful Scottish Orienteering Championships. The meeting was well attended (26), and over 20 proxy votes were received. Minutes and Summary of the meeting below.
Although this has been reported on in the recent AGM Booklet, in our magazine, SCORE, and at the Volunteers’ Activities Weekend, it is important that everyone knows about significant staff changes taking place within the SOA.
Awarded Foundation Level for a further three years
The Scottish Orienteering Association has been re-assessed for the Foundation Level of the Equality Standard for Sport, first achieved in March 2013. Once again we have met the necessary criteria, and our award is valid for a further three years (April 2019). We have been praised by sportscotland for our real commitment to equality and taking this agenda forward in orienteering.
