We are a national network engaged in activities throughout Scotland and operating in every region of the country.
Building on a heritage of meeting the challenge of change through driving innovation and bold thinking, we share a common vision for the future of Scotland. That unity of purpose is delivering sustainable economic growth for Scotland through our nation, our assets and our people.
We are focused on strengthening our economy – to make it more resilient and robust – through increased innovation, productivity and internationalisation underpinned by key infrastructure.
Our members span the public, private and social economy sectors of the economy and across all industries and areas of the country. We bring people together to look at how we drive sustainable economic growth and help members to connect with each other, share knowledge and understand the challenges and opportunities which lie just over the horizon as they reach decision on their own plans for the future.
Benefits of Membership
Membership subscriptions are based on an agreed contribution between the joining organisation and SCDI, determined by the size and type of organisation joining. Membership subscriptions support SCDI’s work in helping to develop and shape policies that support Scotland’s long term economic growth and give opportunities for members to engage through a large program of events throughout the country.
We welcome members of all sizes and from across the public, private and social economy sectors.
SCDI holds a unique place in Scottish public life. It has consistently influenced government and key decision-maker, contributing to Scotland’s development. The inclusive and independent approach of SCDI has created a much valued and trusted forum for dialogue to help deliver our ambitions for Scotland.
