Activities

Working Parties

We’ll consult the members to decide on the issues that warrant the attention of the UKTUG. When there’s a clear brief,  we’ll form a working party of lay people and experts. Once target dates are decided we’ll leave the working party to get on with the task then report back with recommendations for strategy and action. We’ll provide training for those not used to taking part in such activities to ensure there is a consistent approach to the investigations. We also make full use of large enterprise tools such as internet based collaboration to provide fast results without the need for travel to meetings. We make active use of tools such as Web-meetings, on-line surveys to form a consensus. The results of the working party will be shared with the membership by means of web conference or by open events as appropriate. Once a course of action has been agreed we’ll get the whole membership involved in the lobbying process contacting officials, suppliers and other user groups.

Awareness campaigns

When members identify an important issue, the UKTUG leaders may call on all of the members to assist in awareness campaigns such as contacting their MPs, making representations to industry leaders in a coordinated manner or perhaps raise it in social media. The targeted pressure from a large group of activists can often persuade the Administration to re-think a poor decision. We’ve found the bright light of publicity can tear through layers of poor management hiding under the cloak of commercial confidentiality. We’ll provide training in effective lobbying of government and suppliers.

Alert system

We provide an alert system so members can alert others when there is an urgent telecommunications issue or opportunity affecting many people. There are some rules to this to deter self-promotion or false alerts. The same system can be used for generating interest in social events connected with the UKTUG members.

Social events

As the membership increases in size we’ll organise social events where you can meet other members in a social environment or conventions. These might be adventurous or plain social events such as barbecues. We anticipate these will also occur at a local level.
