Communication Changes in SOA

As you will be aware there have been a number of changes to the staffing team within the SOA office in the recent  weeks.  Today we say goodbye to Sarah Hobbs after two years as our communications and marketing guru. Please do bear with us as our current capacity is reduced somewhat. However we look forward to introducing you to our new team members as they are appointed in due course.

As Sarah Hobbs leaves us today as our Membership & Marketing Officer we wanted to say a big thank you for all her work to enhance our administrative systems, advance our Scottish Orienteering membership and improve our communications.  We will be recruiting in the very near future for a replacement position and wish Sarah all the best for her future endeavours. We hope to see her at an orienteering event again soon!
