What we want
ICTU aims to make a significant contribution to the development of the Czech economy so that the Czech Republic can become a leader in competitiveness and thus build an innovative and knowledge-based society. Therefore, ICTU is in a position to co-author proposals for major reforms, legislation and key decisions aimed at the development of ICT in the Czech Republic. ICTU is a partner of state regulatory institutions. ICTU is a pragmatic and efficient association. This means that it wants to put forward proposals that are realistic, practical and, of course, beneficial not only to the ICT industry. However, ICTU does not lobby for the individual interests of its members or influence government procurement.
What we offer
ICTU membership may not bring you direct economic benefits, but it does offer you:
A chance of helping shape a strategy for information society development in Czech Republic
The opportunity to meet ICTU's political, administrative, and business leaders
The opportunity to meet colleagues from the industry (many renowned companies are members of ICTU)
The opportunity to consult laws and other documents related to the ICT sector and not only to the ICT sector
What we expect
In addition to the necessary obligations (such as paying membership fees), you may or may not participate in ICTU activities (as this is not an obligation, we respect your company's time and staff availability):
Attend all ICTU events (some events are for statutory representatives only; others are open to all)
Influence what ICTU does and promotes
Nominate representatives to working groups dealing with specific activities.
In principle, you can be a member because you support ICTU activities, but you are not obliged to take part in ICTU activities. However, we naturally welcome active members who are prepared to occasionally give up some time and "know-how" in the interests of the industry as a whole.
