The 2018 Conference will again include the Annual General Meeting of The Girls’ Brigade in Scotland. This is a special year for GB Scotland as we celebrate 125 year of Girls’ Brigade with our colleagues around the world. The Conference offers delegates the opportunity to attend 3 workshops which are designed to equip Leaders in working within Companies. There will be ‘Question Time’ with the Executive and the AGM, our annual business meeting, will be held during the day. The day will start with opening praise and close with a special service of worship to give thanks for 125 years of Girls’ Brigade.
As part of our GB125 celebrations, there will be a Celebration Dinner in the evening. This is open to partners and friends of GB Scotland and all are welcome. The cost for dinner is £25 per head and will include a drinks reception followed by a 3 course meal, tea and coffee.

There will be five different workshops running over three sessions during the Conference Day meaning that each delegate will be able to attend three out of the five available options. Where possible, delegates will be allocated to workshops according to preference. You are therefore asked to provide each delegate’s preferred options in order from 1st to 5th choice. Please note that depending on the popularity of each workshop it may not be possible to allocate everyone to their three preferred options.
