ASVA welcomes nominations for its Board of Directors

ASVA is inviting nominations from its Attraction Members to join its Board of Directors.

The Board meets four times a year and Directors help develop ASVA’s policies and strategies, as well as ensuring the Association stays close to its members. Board membership can also offer opportunities for representation on other decision-making bodies within Scottish tourism, providing further scope to influence policy and strategy outwith the organisation.

There has never been a more crucial time for the industry, as attractions across the country look to recover from the devastating impact of COVID-19. As the voice of the attractions sector in Scotland, ASVA continues to work tirelessly to support it and to lobby on behalf of its members. ASVA Board Directors have played, and will continue to play, a significant role in supporting this work.

ASVA is also changing and developing as an organisation, with a new five-year strategy set to be introduced at the end of 2021. This is therefore an exciting time to be joining the Board.

Applications are welcomed from high-calibre individuals with a real passion for the industry. In addition to undertaking duties required to ensure good governance of the Association, Directors will be expected:

  • To play an active part in supporting and driving forward the organisation
  • To have a sound knowledge of Scotland’s attractions sector and wider tourism industry.

To ensure the Board represents the breadth of ASVA’s membership, the Association is particularly keen to recruit Attraction Members:

  • From the North, South or West of the country
  • From smaller attractions
  • With experience in financial decision-making at a senior level.

Individuals interested in applying should complete this nomination form, including a brief supporting statement (200-300 words), and return it by the deadline of Friday, 3 October 2021. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for a brief, informal interview with ASVA’s Chair Susan Morrison and CEO Gordon Morrison.

Any questions regarding Board membership and responsibilities should be directed in the first instance to Susan Morrison at Other queries can be directed to Gordon Morrison at

The final decision on the Board appointments will be made according to the voting procedure laid out in the Articles of Association.
