Directors and Post Holders

The Scottish Sub Aqua Club is a Company limited by guarantee in December 2006. We are governed by the Board of Directors who are elected by the Membership and are responsible for the legal governance of the company. Each individual Branch is governed by its Branch Committee. Whilst the Board is the central administration body of ScotSAC, organisation and administration is carried out at branch level wherever possible.

The National Diving Council (NDC) is an advisory body made up of a skilled group of Members with a range of experience. NDC Members are elected annually by the membership and are responsible for assisting the National Diving Officer with the development of diving, safety and training activities. The NDC maintains the regulation and high standards of training throughout ScotSAC and provides information on all questions concerning diving and training.

All members of the Board and the NDC are unpaid volunteers, providing their own time to organise, develop and support ScotSAC and its members.

​ScotSAC Headquarters are located at the sportscotland “House of Sport” at Caledonia House in Edinburgh, with one part-time member of staff. ScotSAC publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Scottish Diver, as well as its own training manuals, logbooks, and other training materials and items.
