Membership and meetings

Update on COVID-19 – 7 April 2020

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and restrictions of movement in place, we have converted all our industry face-to-face meetings to calls and/or online meetings until the end of June. We will review this position on a rolling monthly basis and advise of any continuation of this approach or plans to resume to normal working as soon as possible. The OTA2 will also continue to review the structure of these meetings with a view to making them as efficient and effective as possible..
