We've been putting our members first since 1983. It’s all about you. We’re passionate about connecting you with other organisational users and solution providers in unbiased, collaborative environments where you can get together for education, innovation and information.

We may be small in staff, but we're huge in achieving thanks to our network of amazing volunteers. Together we work hard to deliver membership products and services that will help you:

  • Save the time and costs associated with understanding your product-related challenges

  • Develop best practice in your organisation to cut your professional fees budget 

  • Build knowledgeable, well-connected teams that can add value and competitive advantage

Our commitment to you is to; improve member services; maximise influence within the Oracle community; stay independent and financially viable in the long term and continually inspire, motivate and develop UKOUG employees and volunteers.  

Our aspiration "To be the association in which everyone in the Oracle community engages".

Although we’re UK-based, membership is not restricted to UK organisations so if you’re based overseas and would like to join we’d be happy to welcome you into our community.
