Following on from feedback from our members on what is important to your business we have reviewed our working groups, and given them a refresh for 2019 to make them more relevant and valuable for our members.
SECURITY PROJECT WORKING GROUP
This new group will be looking at how the MNO’s and L1’s can work together to improve the current systems on services that require the secure passing of information.

Continuing Working Groups
Working Groups that have value and continue to have high attendance and engagement have been kept to continue the valuable work they are doing.
CHARITY WORKING GROUP
The Charity Working Group convenes regularly throughout the year with a remit to maximise opportunities in this area, by the sharing of good practice, new initiatives and technologies, success stories and -where required – cautionary tales. It is attended by our charity members, broadcasters, MNO’s and L1’s in a positive environment of knowledge sharing and campaign learning.
This group works with legislators and regulators to help them understand the sector, therefore attempting to minimise unnecessary regulation, whilst continuing to ensure that charitable services always have consumer trust at the heart of their operation.
