tekom - Europe

Initiative Committee Meeting, June 22, 2022

In our June initiative committee meeting we welcomed a new, though for some already familiar, guest: Susanne Lohmüller. She worked at tekom previously, some years ago, and was present at the first foundations of the country organizations. After working for another employer for a few years, she is now part of the tekom team again. She is mainly responsible for iiRDS but will give some support to Katharina with her knowledge of tekom Europe.

Another topic on the agenda was the upcoming tcworld conference in November. There was a discussion on how the delegates and the board members can contribute and support the team in Stuttgart during the conference. The tcworld conference will be held as a hybrid event this year: there will be both on-site and online tickets. Further information on the program, as well as on the tickets, will follow in July. 

At the end, we had a short brainstorming session concerning the tekom Europe newsletter, the use of the tekom Europe website and the portal ’my tekom’. There were some good ideas: for one, that the tekom Europe Newsletter should be given a more personal touch by adding a “personal” section containing profiles of volunteers or staff. We are always happy to receive new ideas and suggestions and will soon work on their implementation.

We are taking a summer break and will start again with our regular meetings in August. The agenda topics for this monthly meeting are usually provided by the participants to ensure that there is time for the main points coming directly from tekom Europe members and representatives.
