Working Group - Communications
This group is responsible for the communication strategy for the whole HAUC (UK) Community.
This focuses on three main areas:
- Agreeing and prioritising the publication of legislative updates and guidance
- Using the most appropriate distribution medium and focusing on members preferences
- Showcasing industry achievements especially innovation, best practice and working groups activities across the sectors
The HAUC (UK) Communications Manager will liaise with all 4 nations to ensure communications are appropriate, useful and current. The website will regularly be updated and have a useful FAQ section as well as links to all current legislative documents and codes of practice.
This group will evolve with the needs and requirements of our members and strive to deliver future communications using technology as appropriate.
