New RSPBA Executive Officer Resigns

The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association has confirmed that Colin Darroch, the Executive Officer of the organization since only March of this year, abruptly resigned the position on June 6.

Darroch officially took over the RSPBA’s most important position at the organization’s AGM, succeeding embattled leader Iain White.

While the RSPBA confirmed the news, it could not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding Darroch’s resignation. In the absence of an Executive Officer, the association will be run by the various leaders of the RSPBA’s National Council and Music Committee.

Darroch’s resignation comes at an inopportune time for the RSPBA, as it is in the midst of considering major changes to its structure. In January, the RSPBA’s ad hocMillennium Group submitted its much-anticipated report, which recommends a dramatic overhaul of the association.

In further news, the RSPBA confirmed that it is working on an official Web site for the organization, which it hopes to unveil in the next few months.
