We held two one-day recording conferences for recorders and members in 2018. They were on the 14th April at RBGE and on the 28th April at Strathpeffer. The same programme was repeated (more or less) so folk could choose whichever was more convenient. For further information and many of the talks see the Scottish Conferences page.
