Membership is open to everyone eager to encourage the aims of the Society. Individuals may join on an annual basis for £10 or life membership is £150 (Life membership includes a free Society tie or scarf) Any inquiries regarding membership should be made to the Secretary. The Society also welcomes donations and legacies.

New Directors are elected each year to join the Board which is representative of many sectors of agriculture in Aberdeenshire, Banffshire, Moray and Kincardineshire. It is the voluntary commitment of the Directors and Members, strongly supported by many companies and other organisations involved to some extent in agriculture, which enables the Society to successfully carry forward its range of activities throughout the year.



 Our 2016/17 office bearers are pictured below (L-R):

 Robbie Newlands (Senior Vice-President), Janelle Anderson (President), Rodney Blackhall (Junior Vice-President)



The Society is a not-for-profit organisation and traditionally operates without overheads or full-time employees. It retains the services of a Secretary/Treasurer, currently Mrs Alison M Argo. The Secretary can be contacted for information about all aspects of the Society and its work at any time.
