THE communications and campaigns manager at older people charity, Age Scotland, has been named convener of the public affairs representative body in Scotland for businesses, charities, trade associations and others.

Lindsay Scott has been appointed as the new convener of the Association for Scottish Public Affairs.

Says a ASPA media release: “ASPA was established in 1998 by public affairs and policy practitioners in Scotland and today has a diverse membership, drawn from businesses, charities, consultancies, membership organisations, and trade associations.”
