International Women's Day

International Women’s Day

Monday is International Women’s Day – a day dedicated to celebrating the social, economic and political achievements of women around the world. We are 100% committed to gender equality and I’m extremely proud to say that 60% of the senior leadership team at the Council are women. I’m honoured to work alongside so many strong, successful women.

Register to vote
Can you believe it’s March already? I don’t know about you, but I feel like I just blinked and February was over. Next Thursday (10 March) is #WelcomeToYourVoteDay – and the Electoral Commission is encouraging everyone aged 16 or over, and resident in Scotland, to register to vote so you can take part in the council elections in May.

For information about how to register so you can have your say on who you want to represent you in Argyll and Bute, visit the Council website.

As you know we have to staff a number of Polling Stations across the Council area. Many of you already work with us on Election Day but if you are interested in helping or know of anyone outside of the Council, please get in touch. We’re particularly looking for people to help in the Helensburgh/Lomond and Dunoon/Cowal areas.

If you are interested, please contact Shona Barton. More information is available on our website

Have a lovely weekend.
