CfS Elects New Executive

The 2016 AGM for the Scottish Labour Campaign for Socialism (CfS) was preceded by a public meeting with Lesley Brennan MSP and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP.  Chaired by Elaine Smith MSP, the meeting heard of Labour plans in both Scotland and the UK to re-frame the current political debate and provide a genuine economic alternative to Tory and SNP austerity. 

Following the public meeting the CfS AGM took place for members only, and office bearers were elected to the executive for the year ahead.  Particular thanks were given to Elaine Smith MSP for her long-standing service as convenor as well as Vince Mills and Pauline Bryan who were, respectively, standing down from Chair for another role and retiring from the Executive altogether.

Convenor: Neil Findlay MSP

Chair: Denise Christie
