Chris Nicholson WS
I was elected onto the Board of Scouts Scotland in 2017.
I have been fortunate to have been involved with Scouting from a young age, starting with Beavers all the way through to the then Venture Scouts (gaining my Chief Scout’s Award) and then as an Assistant Cub Scout Leader. I am very excited about being able to give something back to a Movement that has given me so much.
Professionally, I am a solicitor and civil servant working for the Scottish Government. My role on the board will principally relate to legal compliance and good governance.
There couldn’t be a better time to be re-joining Scouting in Scotland as it is growing and modernising at a remarkable rate. I look forward to playing my part and, in line with our strategic plan, helping our members to be active citizens and make an positive impact in the communities they live in.
