Governing & Operating Board

UKOUG is a membership community of over 8,500 individuals who work for a variety of Oracle customers, Oracle partners and the Oracle Corporation. The UKOUG organisation is structured in the following way:

The UKOUG is governed by an Operating Board which makes decisions on behalf of members and develops the strategy and business plan for the organisation. The UKOUG Operating Board is made up of 7 individuals. There are 3 elected members who represent UKOUG member views, they are the President, Member Advocate Chair and Member Advocate. They serve alongside 3 appointed members who are the UKOUG Executive Director, the Non Executive Finance Director and an additional Independent Director. Also present at UKOUG Operating Board Meetings is the UKOUG Head of Operations & Events as Company Secretary.

The UKOUG Operating Board Strategy and Business Plan is then implemented and delivered by the UKOUG operations team.  The UKOUG team is based at the London head office and is managed day-to-day by the UKOUG Executive Director.
