Knowledge Groups and Steering Groups form a critical part of ECM and are one of the key success factors for the association.
What is a Knowledge Group?
Knowledge Groups (KG) are expert teams focusing on specific aspects of city marketing and urban tourism development. They discuss issues, share best practice, prepare reports, conduct surveys and, in certain cases, undertake joint marketing activities.
Each group is composed of minimum 6 persons and they meet on a regular basis in ‘closed’ and/or ‘open’ formats. The former are restricted to knowledge group members, while the ‘open groups’ occur when the group elects to share their experience with the wider ECM membership.
How can I join a Knowledge Group?
The KG are composed of members interested in sharing knowledge and expertise on a specific topic. You should be able to invest time to work for the group, and bring knowledge. Also, you must be able to participate to at least 1 meeting per year. To join a group, please contact the chairperson, and you will be gladly admitted! There will certainly be a topic of interest for you, do not hesitate to join them. The more you will give, the more you will get!
Even if you are not part of the group, see how you can contribute.
