Advocacy & Public Affairs Group
12 June @ 10:00 - 12:00
The ITS UK Advocacy & Public Affairs Group is our main forum for the discussion of policy, comms and public affairs issues. The Group provides the opportunity for attendees to hear from a key speaker on a relevant policy topic, followed by an update on ITS UK’s Advocacy & Public Affairs Plan.
We will be joined by Seb Gordon, Director of Communications & Engagement at Great British Railways Transition Team (GBRTT). Seb will talk about the priorities for the creation of the new organisation that will run Britain’s railways.
We have also invited a representative from National Highways to discuss their comms activities.
The next meeting will take place at Atkins’ offices in Victoria, London.
This event is open to all members – register to attend here.
