Anniversary Meeting and AGM 2023

30th November 2023 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Great Seal of Scotland presented to the Society in 1783



Fellows are invited to register to attend the Anniversary Meeting either in person or online. This will be a hybrid event and will start at 4.30PM GMT. The number of in-person attendees at the church is limited to 100 so please let us know in advance if you are unable to take up your place.

Details of the event and the ability to vote online are available to Fellows through the link below. You will need to be logged into the website as a Fellow (use the red Fellows Login button at the top of the Society webpages) and click on the link below to take you to the Anniversary Meeting and AGM page on the Fellow’s only noticeboard.

The Anniversary Meeting will also include a short talk by Dr Darroch Bratt FSAScot on The Social World of Whisky Smugglers in the 18th and 19th Century. This lecture will take a look at the social world of whisky smuggling in the Highlands and Islands – how did people engaged in this risky activity relate to one another, to others in society and the landscape? Darroch lives in the Highlands where he worked in the whisky industry for ten years before undertaking a PhD studying the historical archaeology of whisky distilling in the Highlands and Islands.

This event will be followed by a reception and nibbles.

Please keep an eye on the Society website, e-newsletters and your email inbox for the latest news and further information on Society events.

Anniversary Meeting Information & Registration



This will give you the opportunity to view the Agenda and vote online for new Fellows, Honorary Fellows and Council members, including the President. The agenda and further documentation is available on the Fellow’s Only area of the website and will be posted to those Fellows for whom we do not have an email address. We will also be circulating a notice to register and vote by email.

Voting will be counted in advance of the meeting itself, and ballots will close on 12noon GMT Wednesday 29th November 2023 to facilitate the independent scrutiny of the votes by two Fellows and the results tallied.

Voting is now open.

Looking forward to seeing as many Fellows as possible on St Andrew’s Day!
