The recently established Adjudicator Development Group has held 3 meetings with adjudicators. Two were held in Glasgow on the 15th and 22nd March with one in Lisburn, Northern Ireland on the 29th March. In total, 44 adjudicators have attended the sessions with high levels of engagement and discussion from everyone who attended. A summary of the main points arising from each meeting will be made available in the near future to all adjudicators.

Gordon Hamill, Chairman of the Board of Directors and the members of the Adjudicators Development Group thank participants for their attendance, the high level of engagement and the quality of their contributions.

An Information Meeting for all Drum Major Adjudicators will be held in RSPBA Headquarters, Glasgow on Saturday 3rd May, commencing 10am.

The final Adjudicator Information Meeting for this year is planned for Wednesday 13th August in RSPBA Headquarters, Glasgow, commencing 10am. This meeting is aimed at overseas adjudicators and any adjudicator who has been unable to attend the meetings held previously.
