Membership Services

The following list of services is not exhaustive and we will be developing these further over the forthcoming year.

ACTion Newsletter The ACTion newsletter is currently produced three times a year to keep members up to date with ACT activities, the latest travel plan developments and how different organisations are developing their own travel plans. Additional copies of the ACTion newsletter are available to Corporate Members to send out with their own travel plan information.

Annual General Meeting The Annual General Meeting is held in June after the half-day summer conference. All ACT members are invited to the AGM although only corporate members have a voting right.

Conferences ACT holds two conferences a year. The annual conference is a one-day event combining a range and expert speakers and workshop based presentations. The summer conference is a half-day event, held prior to the AGM.

Courses Through PTRC, a variety of courses on travel plans and related issues are available to ACT corporate members at discounted rates. Currently these include:

Young People and Travel Behaviour Airport Transport Strategies and Forums Hospital Parking and Travel Plans An Introduction to Travel Plans Interactive Workshop: How to Action Travel Plans.

Factsheets

ACT will be developing a number of factsheets over the forthcoming year. These will cover either specific travel plan issues such as survey design and car sharing, or focus on case studies from different sectors.

Forums

ACT forums will be a series of working groups, which examine different issues with the aim of breaking down some of the barriers and furthering the development of key travel plan issues. The forums will discuss issues such as 'Section 106 agreements', 'Working in Partnership with Public Transport Operators' and 'Maintaining the Momentum'.

Library Services

ACT has a wide range of publications related to travel plans from DTLR guidance, travel plan guides, sample travel survey's and examples of marketing literature. These are available to ACT members to use throughout the year.

Masterclasses

Masterclasses are held at various intervals throughout the year. They are a half-day event based around a specific topic or case study, which comprise presentations, site visits and interactive discussion groups. They are an excellent opportunity for members to network and look in closer detail at specific travel plan issues. Recent Masterclasses have included a site tour of AstraZeneca to both see and hear how they are developing their travel plan, and an introduction to the US Traffic Demand Management Toolkit.

Members Directory

We currently provide all new members with an up to date membership list to facilitate networking amongst our members. To enable all members to have a better understanding of current member's work we intend putting together a member's directory, which will be updated regularly and available in a variety of formats.

Website http://www.act-uk.com

ACT's website will undergo extensive redevelopment this year. We will be putting a wide range of material on the website including action, the member's directory and details of forthcoming events. Some of these will only be accessible through a member's only page. We will also continue to develop links with other organisations involved in developing travel plans, from both the UK and abroad.
