Welcome to the CC-UK!
CC-UK is the Communities Committee – UK, and is made up of a number of IET volunteers from around the UK, together with IET staff support. Our role is to support all communities activities in the UK, whether geographical, technical, young professionals, retired members or special interest. We are here to help, not
to tell you what to do. We want to help you collaborate with other communities and resolve difficult issues.
Part of our role is to facilitate effective communication between UK communities and to assist with the sharing of best practice. This newsletter is one of the tools that we are using for this, and we also organise and run an annual Volunteers’ Conference. In addition we are rotating our three physical committee meetings a year around the UK, and running a roadshow for local communities the evening before our meeting. This gives us a real opportunity to listen to communities, as well as to explain what CC-UK are doing and what else is happening in the IET. Each member of the CC-UK also acts as a point of contact for a number of communities in the UK, and will arrange to meet with them during the year. A full list of CC-UK members can be found on the CC-UK MyCommunity site.
We have a significant role in planning and budgeting, and are responsible for allocating funding and other resources to the UK communities, within the overall budget set by the Community Resource Committee. Each year we set aside a small part of the UK budget to pay for new initiatives and rapid response topical events that communities wish to run and have not included in the annual planning cycle.
We are always interested in hearing from you, please do get in touch with us through this site or the CC-UK Twitter feed.
