COSCA's 2008 AGM FEATURES LORD JAMIE SEMPILL, CO-DIRECTOR OF THE GATHERING 2009
COSCA's Annual General Membership Meeting will be held at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games
in North Carolina, on Saturday, July 12, 2008. It will take place at 2:00 PM in the Clan Chieftains' tent. The
featured speaker will be Lord Jamie Sempill, Vice-Convenor of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs,
who will be answering questions about The Gathering 2009. He will be visiting all the clan tents and will
be sharing COSCA's tent. The Gathering 2009, an international gathering in Edinburgh of clans
and highland games, is one of the signature events of Homecoming Scotland, a year long government
initiative aimed at encouraging those with a passion or connection with Scotland to come "home".
Lord Sempill has offered to award two free Passport tickets to The Gathering 2009 celebration. These will be available only to
members of COSCA and those clans / associations which attend COSCA's AGM at Grandfather Mountain. The lucky clan can
then use the Passports as they see fit.
"Passport tickets" are all-entry tickets
for the weekend, giving you a place in
the clan parade on the Royal Mile, a
seat on the castle esplanade for the
clan pageant and tickets to both Sat-
urday and Sunday at the Highland
Games in Holyrood.
To see if your clan or association
is currently a member, check for your
name on our website. If not, hurry
and pay your 2007-2008 dues before
the AGM! This can be done on CO-
SCA's website: www.cosca.net or by mail.
