The Scotland Island Residents Association Committee (SIRAC) has a number of established subcommittees (also called Working Groups), each with a team leader. Some of the working groups also manage the services provided by SIRA to the community.
Working groups meet on a regular basis and discuss matters that may have been delegated to them by the SIRA committee or are brought up as discussion items from within the working groups or members of the association. Working groups may need to engage with the community to gauge opinion or to understand how strongly the community feels about certain matters.
Any interested islander who is a member of SIRA is welcome to join one or more of the working groups. The involvement and skills of community members help SIRA to provide a more meaningful service, so we encourage everyone to get involved!
