Meet the Chairman

The current Chairman of the Club is Pamela Cradock

Born in North Yorkshire to Scottish parents, I was brought up in Aberdeen and The Hague. I attended St. Margaret’s School as a boarder when my parents moved from The Hague to Muscat, Oman.

After working in property leasing, I joined a financial services company and achieved my qualifications whilst working for a series of both tied and independent advice practices. I have worked with McHardy Financial since November 2011.

I am married to Rory, a Private Client Solicitor and we are in the process of renovating our new home in Aberdeen.

Membership of The Royal Northern and University Club is by nomination

Those interested in becoming Members should contact the Club Secretary, who will be pleased to provide further information. Current Members of the Club will also be able to answer the enquiries of potential candidates for admission.

The Club has two main categories of Membership: Ordinary and Country. Eligibility for Country Membership which has a lower subscription rate, is available for Members when their residential and business address are outwith a 50 mile radius of Aberdeen. Further categories, Junior Membership for those between the ages of 21 and 30, and Associate Membership are also available.



Many of today's Members are actively involved in local, national and international affairs. Although they are business people, they know they are Members of a Club, where briefcases are left closed and business talk is confined to private rooms. Members are encouraged to use the Club as a home away from home where they can meet like-minded friends in a pleasant and comfortable envirionment.

The ambience of the Club has to be experienced to be appreciated. It is about good companionship and a sense of belonging in a dignified atmosphere, where old traditions have meaning and value, because they have been tested and retained.
