PMR-GCA Scotland

Support for Polymyalgia and Giant Cell Arteritis Sufferers in Scotland

Members’ Day and AGM 2022

The Members’ Day and AGM 2022 was held via Zoom on 25 March 2022. (A recording of the meeting is not available).

The meeting opened with an excellent, well received presentation by Dr Sarah Mackie, entitled ‘Progress in PMR’. After which Sarah kindly answered many members questions. Our thanks to Sarah for the time taken and her continued support for the charity.

Following the meeting our founder, Jean Miller, commented:

“Having just attended the 16th AGM of PMR-GCA Scotland on 25/03/22, I realised how far the charity had come. I founded it, but with very limited skills. It is thanks to the skills of those who came after me that the charity has expanded and developed beyond my wildest dreams for which I am truly grateful. I wish the current and future Trustees and Management team all the skills and support they need to keep the charity developing and expanding.

Good luck!”

As part of the development Jean refers to, the meeting approved the change in the legal form of the charity to a SCIO. This will not affect the visible operation of the charity and the support it provides. However, it will take time to transfer the bank account and make other technical changes. Once completed members will be informed of the automatic transfer of their membership to the new SCIO and given the opportunity to decline the change.
