BATA Special Interest Group (SIG): Terms of Reference

The purpose of  SIG is to promote the UK Assistive Technology Industry and raise awareness of Assistive Technology in the UK. The SIGs are a vital part of our strategies in mobilising our members and those who subscribe to our aims .  Where appropriate the SIG will lobby on behalf of the sector under the BATA logo. 


Membership of the group is open to all  members of BATA and a Chair will be elected on an annual basis from within the group. The Chair will report back to the BATA council on the activities of the group on a monthly basis (or as required). The Chair will be coopted to the BATA council (if not already a member).


Meetings will take place as directed by the Chair of each SIG. The Chair will take responsibility for coordinating meetings, and circulation of  meeting agendas and minutes in a timely manner. The group will work together in a collaborative fashion with each member expected to show honesty, integrity and respect towards one another.
