The UK’s Intelligent Transport Society, ITS (UK) has signed an agreement to deliver Secretariat services for ITS Arab around membership management and recruitment, accounting, communications, website management and meeting support.
ITS (UK) will receive a revenue share from the ITS Arab membership fees to fund the extra secretarial work it is taking on. The organisations have furthermore agreed to share technical information, facilitate visits when required and generally increase co-operation between the regions.
“We are excited that ITS (UK), as the world’s oldest national ITS membership organisation, have accepted to provide secretarial services to ITS Arab as one of the fastest growing markets in the world” explained ITS Arab Secretary General, Zeina Nazer. “By strengthening our relationship with our friends at ITS (UK), ITS Arab will now have an experienced, exceptionally talented team to support our work, allowing us to offer more to existing members and sign up additional ones, therefore improving the awareness and take-up of ITS solutions across our region.”
“We are pleased to be invited to support ITS Arab in its mission to expand the take-up of intelligent mobility solutions in their region,” added ITS (UK) Secretary General Jennie Martin. “ITS (UK) is the powerful combined voice of the ITS sector here in the UK and we can use our skills and experience to support ITS Arab as they fulfil the same function in their region. Our two organisations have a long history of cooperating and by us delivering secretariat support to ITS Arab we are taking that close relationship a step further. The new arrangement will deliver improved benefits for the members of both organisations and will enable them to form useful new partnerships and contacts in the future.”
ITS Arab and ITS (UK) are planning a joint event at Gulf Traffic in Dubai this December.
