MySCSI: Get involved
Thanks to the huge amount of time devoted by our member volunteers working together with our dedicated staff, the SCSI has gone from strength to strength over the last number of years and the position of the organisation is increasingly elevated and recognised as a valued independent, expert and trusted voice for the property, land and construction sector.
We are proud to talk about the delivery model in SCSI as in the public interest and “for the members, by the members” but the increasing demands on the Society to contribute to topical debate means we urgently need to expand our pool of member volunteers that are willing to give some time to share valuable expertise and experience.
As part of our MySCSI campaign, we hope to grow the numbers of members getting involved. This will help us not only to deliver on the growing demand for the insights you can bring but we hope you will bring your ideas and experiences to inform the next generation of SCSI activities.
