Requirements Committee #15 – Local Ambassadors

2020-10-15

The 30th of September Requirements Committee meeting discussed how to engage more members in the committees and working groups. ITxPT will reach out personally and through communication channels to explain the work in the groups and committees. The meeting also decided to enhance a direct dialogue with stakeholders in each country through finding and encouraging ITxPT ambassadors who can host local events and workshops. Anders Fromell from ITxPT proposed an updated definition of objectives for Requirements Working Group 03, which the meeting accepted. The group will, therefore, focus on login services.

Active members are vital

The ITxPT collaborative community thrives when members participate in the committees and working groups, contribute their different views reflecting the industry’s needs, and get the work done.

 

Explain committees and working groups

ITxPT will enhance its communication regarding the benefits of influencing future standards and practices and explain how committees and working groups operate. This way, it becomes easier for members to see how to contribute and realize that it is not too heavy to engage in active work.

Local Ambassadors

The Requirements Committee decided to reach out to National Associations and other organizations in close contact with local stakeholders. The idea is to find and encourage ambassadors who, with the aid of the ITxPT team, can further engage the industry in their respective countries and local languages, through workshops, seminars, and other events. If you would like to host a regional meeting, please contact ITxPT.
