At this year's AGM, taking place at 12 noon on 2nd July at Penta Hotel, Reading, the UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG) Board of Directors will be proposing that the UKOUG structure is amended in accordance with the following Resolution for Organisational Change.
Following the July 2011 resolution for change, we have delivered success; the Office supported by the Executive have turned membership around and we are now experiencing growth, financially we are making progress but there is a way to go.
Having listened to membership feedback we acknowledge the Council are still not able to effectively represent all our communities and member needs. We have also had communication challenges between the three pillars; Council, Executive and Board and there is a lack of empowerment within the Office Operations.
Since January 2013 we have experienced a number of Council/Board member resignations and have subsequently formed a working group with representation across all functions in UKOUG including Council, Executive, Board and Office Operations, tasked with identifying an evolution of the current structure designed to ensure:
1) All member communities are fully represented in UKOUG Strategy and Planning activities,
2) UKOUG Operations are able to deliver member products and services effectively.
3) Improve governance
The new proposal leverages the lessons we have learned and importantly empowers the people who represent our communities best, our Volunteers. This proposal was approved by the Board of Directors on 14th June 2013.
Please do not hesitate to contact any of the UKOUG Directors should you wish to discuss this proposal in more detail.
