Scottish branch

The CIPFA Scottish Branch comprises the whole CIPFA membership in Scotland.

Formed in 1906, the Scottish Branch has over 1,000 CIPFA-qualified full members and 300 student members. A number of important Branch activities take place each year including the Annual Conference and the Development Weekend.

The principal function of the Scottish Branch is to promote the policies and reputation of the Institute in Scotland as provided by the Royal Charter and Bye Laws, in particular the science of public finance and accountancy.
