Taking action on smoking and health
Thank you for your interest in joining the Board of ASH Scotland, a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. We are the independent Scottish charity taking action to reduce the harm caused by tobacco. Our work seeks to improve health and quality of life by challenging the inequalities resulting from tobacco use, and working to put tobacco out of sight, out of mind and out of fashion for the next generation. To help us set and deliver our strategic aims and maintain good governance, we rely on the direction and support of a strong Board of Directors with a wide range of interests, experience and expertise.
ASH Scotland Board meetings are held four times a year, with dates for the year agreed in advance. Meetings are held at ASH Scotland’s premises at 8 Frederick Street, Edinburgh EH2 2HB, usually from 3.30pm to 5.30pm (our Annual Meeting in September starts half an hour earlier to accommodate the AGM). An agenda and papers for meetings are issued a week in advance. Please note that our premises are not fully accessible for those with mobility issues and let us know if this is likely to cause a problem for you
We have two Board sub-committees which Directors are welcome to join: the Funding, Finance & General Purposes sub-committee, and the Policy & Development sub-committee.
