About this region
The Scottish region of Socitm has over a 100 members. It holds regional meetings 4 times a year when guest speakers from both the public and private sector are invited to come and speak on topics of interest to our members. Topics range from important management issues affecting senior IT people to hot technical issues. These regional meeting are also a great opportunity to network with colleagues. The region also runs a strong information security sub-group for security officers. Besides regional meetings a number o f members represent SOCITM on Scottish and UK groups helping to influence the direction of IT in the public sector. Our aim for the coming year is to increase the number of regional members from outside local government as joint working across the public becomes even more important in the current economic climate.
