ISSUE 26 SUMMER 2020
    Welcome from our new President
   I
t’s an honour to have been elected as your President and I look forward to the year ahead - but perhaps
For now, we must concentrate firstly on the health of our families and then on the health of our colleagues, our businesses and our clients. From understanding and then explaining what a furlough is, to working collaboratively with their teams, to video conferencing with clients. From my experience, our members have evolved through this crisis to achieve things they previously thought impossible.
The situation is a fluid one despite the announcement of the lifting of some of
the restrictions, but whatever the next announcement, the position is likely to remain challenging for some time to come. As members, we will be vital in helping our businesses and clients survive the economic crisis that is associated with this pandemic.
As a Society, this year may need to be the most innovative of all our years. The basis of our contact with members to date has been that of physical face to face contact. We have already begun to deliver our courses
via webinars and hope to extend this to other events, and in fact Chartered ONE, as you are reading it in this form, is a fine example of our plans to adapt.
Our hope is that this may allow members who might not have attended physical events the opportunity to participate and to potentially access presenters that otherwise may not have been available. Whatever happens we will continue as we have always done to endeavour to serve out members as best we can.
My hopes are that we will still be able to have the sesquicentennial celebrations we have so far missed, but the timing of these events and other regular events remains a conundrum now and is likely to for the next few months.
Finally though, I look forward to being your President in this interesting year ahead.
ROB YOUNG
President, LSCA, 2020/21
As Burns once said “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, however I don’t think any of us could have predicted what would happen next.
  with a different perspective than I had thought.
Firstly, my thanks to Andrew Lovelady for having steered our Society through an unexpected 150th year. Andrew, and our Committee, had planned an outstanding year, and it has only been partially diminished by recent events - but many memorable events, nevertheless.
At the 2019 AGM I looked forward with anticipation to the sesquicentennial celebrations.
After all, the Committee had been discussing how best to reflect this auspicious year and honour the founding members for a number of years. As Burns once said “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”, however
I don’t think any of us could have predicted what would happen next.
