National Council

The different committees within the Guild are made up of representatives from every presbyterial council. Each committee is chaired by a convener and the National Council is chaired by the National Convener.

The National Council is responsible for the development of policy, relating to other Church councils & committees, appointing a General Secretary, overseeing the work of constituent committees & working groups and participation in consultations for the Scottish Parliament (and response to immediate issues).
