The Pensions Trust's SCVO Pensions Advisory Committee announces election results

Issued: 5 October 2004

The Pensions Trust is pleased to announce the election of two new members and the re-election of one member, to the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) Pension Scheme’s Pensions Advisory Committee. The successful candidates were:

  • Bola Adeshina of Clapham Park Project (Employer Nominated Representative)
  • Judith Curry of Commonwealth Institute (Member Nominated Representative)
  • Martin Scott of Capital Credit Union (Employer Nominated Representative, re-elected)

The new and re-elected members will serve for four years, from 1 October 2004. At the end of their term, they may either step down or stand for re-election.

David Kelly, Chair of the Committee, said: "We are very happy to welcome our two new members and of course, to have Martin still with us. These are difficult times for all final salary arrangements, what with the slow recovery of the stock market, increasing member life expectancy and new pensions legislation due to be brought in over the next few years. I am sure all our Committee members can expect a challenging time ahead."

The SCVO Final Salary Pension Scheme was set up in April 1990. The Scheme provides pensions and ancillary benefits for employees of organisations throughout the UK, which are affiliated to the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations.
