The Scottish Independence Convention (SIC) is a Scottish nationalistic cross-party, non-partisan group with the aim of bringing together pro-independence parties, groups and organisations to promote the concept and ideals of an independent Scotland. The current conveners are Iain Black and Maggie Chapman (ex- co-convener of the Scottish Green Party) .
The SIC was created in 2005 as a forum for those of all political persuasions and none who support independence, and to be a national catalyst for Scottish independence. With the election of the SNP in 2007, the SIC was largely on hiatus, with more informal meetings being held between pro-independence forces instead of being through SIC channels.
The Convention agreed a new constitution in February 2017 to establish its purpose, aims and aspirations;
It was announced on the 4th anniversary of Scotland's independence referendum of 2014 that the SIC is to establish a new national campaign for independence, utilising its position as a body bringing together Scotland's pro-independence parties, groups and think tanks for a refreshed vision of independence through grassroots campaigning.
Voices for Scotland was launched as the campaign arm of the Scottish Independence Conventionin April 2019. The organisation is a civic campaign for Scottish independence, with an aim to get support for Scottish independence above 60%
