New Date for SOPA AGM - 29th January 2024

Our next AGM is to be held on Monday 29th January 2024 at The AV Theatre, Mackintosh at the Willow, 215-217 Sauchiehall Street, 12.30pm to 2.30pm. If you can't attend in person there will be the option to join via Zoom. (NB we have changed the date from 5th December as this clashed with the Age Scotland AGM).

We are delighted to announce that, following the short official business of the AGM, there will be a presentation by Dr Louise Brown Nicholls entitled, ‘Health and Wellbeing Through the Adult Lifespan’

Dr Louise Brown Nicholls is a Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, where she leads her Memory & Ageing Lab group. Louise gained her PhD in cognitive ageing at Glasgow Caledonian University in 2007, before working as a postdoctoral researcher until 2011. She was then a lecturer at Nottingham Trent University until she moved to Strathclyde in 2014. Louise is Director of the Strathclyde Ageing Network, comprising Strathclyde's multidisciplinary ageing-related researchers. She is also a founding member of the new Scottish Cognitive Ageing Network, which brings together cognitive ageing researchers across Scotland. Some of Louise's research has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, the Chief Scientist Office, and The Carnegie Trust. Louise enjoys working with older adults in the community and external organisations, including SOPA, to share ideas. Louise’s hope is that her group’s research will be able to make positive impacts on people’s everyday lives as they age.

After our successful Assembly in October, when we met many of our members face-to-face and discussed areas of common interest on the many issues affecting older people today, we look forward to seeing as many of you again as possible at our AGM.  Please RSVP to hetty@scotopa.org.uk
