Coordinating Group ~ Schedule of Meetings 2020

At the AGM on 2nd November 2019 it was agreed that meetings for the coming year would now be scheduled in advance. This will allow time to secure reasonably priced venues and for members across Scotland to consider hosting the CG meeting in their area.

It is hoped that we can offer some of these as regional meetings, with 3 or 4 of the CG meetings per year in the Central belt and the others being in different areas of Scotland where members have expressed a desire for this and are able to find a suitable venue.

The schedule for 2020 is as follows:

Saturday 25th January ~ Glasgow
Sunday 29th March ~ TherapyTrain Stirling, Wellgreen Business Centre, Stirling
Sunday 14th June ~ SGM ~ online
Sunday 27th September ~ online
Saturday 28th November ~ venue tbc

Please watch future newsletters, the website and our social media for updates to venues, times and any additional info closer to the meeting dates.

If you would be interested in having the meeting in your area, please contact me at secretary@pctscotland.co.uk to have a chat about how that will work.

Some members have expressed confusion about the process of renewing your membership online, so to help with this process here is a step-by-step guide to renewals. 

A Special General Meeting of PCT Scotland has been called by Stephanie Hutchinson and Susan Stephen to accept Tonia Higgins’ resignation as Secretary, and to elect a replacement. 
A replacement for the role of Membership Secretary is also required as Tonia has been carrying out this role in addition to her Secretary responsibilities.
Current membership of the Coordinating Group will also be reviewed and ratified at the SGM. 
Are you interested in committing to an active role in taking PCT Scotland forward? All practitioners members of PCT Scotland are eligible for election as office-bearers and for co-option as Coordinating Group members. Getting involved also offers the opportunity to meet other members, gain insight and confidence about your way of being in groups, and develop group facilitation skills. Both the Secretary and Membership Secretary receive an honorarium payment, currently calculated at the rate of £15 per hour. Training and support will be given.
The SGM on Sunday 14th June 2020 (1.30pm – 4.00pm) will take place on the Zoom platform, hosted by Stephanie Hutchinson. An email containing the Meeting ID, link and brief guidance on accessing a Zoom meeting will be sent to all members in advance of the meeting. 
Note. It was originally planned that the AGM would be held on Sunday 14th June. However, given the current circumstances, the Coordinating Group has decided to delay ordinary AGM business until September (date to be confirmed). At the current time it is anticipated that this meeting will also be held online.

PCT Scotland is opening up the opportunity to connect with other members across Scotland as a member of an self-directed online peer support group. 

The idea is simple:
~ complete online form and let me know what topics you'd be interested in discussing in a group or whether you'd be interested in being part of a general group.  
~ I'll keep an eye on the interest coming in and once there are at least three people with similar interests I will contact you to check that you are still happy for me to put you in touch with other potential members.
~ Once you are in contact with each other it's over to the group to decide everything else ~ when you want to meet, how often, group boundaries, topics for discussion etc.

I will be genuinely interested to hear how the groups are doing from time to time, and whether this is helpful for the members, but I wouldn't intend to influence the running of them in any way.

Did you know that PCT Scotland has social media communities online to keep us connected even when geographical distance is an issue?  You can 'Like', 'Follow'and get involved here:

There is now a list of members who have volunteered to offer information/connection to other members on an ad hoc basis.  If any member wishes to consult with someone regarding any queries and issues they may have, such as starting a private practice; working in a non- PCA therapeutic environment; ways of networking/connecting with other PCA practitioners; CPD opportunities, the list of members and their contact details can be found below:
