In Scotland, the year 2018 has been designated to be the Year of Young People. Meanwhile Scotland is in the process of enabling its own new powers which in future will provide the tools to engage Scotland’s youth while dealing with the ongoing need to rethink demand from an ageing population.

This will set the backdrop for CIPFA Scotland’s annual conference in 2018, themed 'Public Money, People and Powers: Scotland's dynamic force for change'. 


The lens of public finance will be applied to examine the link between our public finances and the role that the wider population as well as that of the future workforce will play in a prosperous Scotland. Financing that future will remain reliant upon public money and the ingenuity of Scotland’s leading people both young or mature.

The wider context is that the conference will take place with only one full financial year before the UK’s scheduled withdrawal from the EU.  Meanwhile, Scotland continues to lead the way in the UK in finding new ways to utilise tax and borrowing powers and to exploit the benefits of devolved powers. 

Why attend?

This two-day conference offers CIPFA’s blended programme which enables business to be conducted amidst inspirational discussion and also includes the CIPFA conference social scene which is an essential component for all delegates.

The conference format will include a choice for delegates with four separate streams – young people, public finance, future workforce and change. This will enable a personal conference journey to be selected which meets each delegate’s professional requirements.

To acknowledge the Year of the Young Person, CIPFA’s students will specifically host specially invited young people from Scotland as delegates who will be experiencing a major public finance conference for the first time.
