There are a number of ways you can get involved with OpenActive and be part of the community.

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee takes a long-term and broad view in order to set and carry out the strategy of the initiative. Members are drawn from a range of organisations across the sector, each bringing their own particular expertise, to ensure that the initiative makes balanced decisions. The Steering Committee welcomes input, and considers advice received at each meeting.

Adoption and Engagement Forum

The Adoption and Engagement Forum brings together everyone involved in advocating for OpenActive, and provides a space for sharing of progress, looking for opportunities to collaborate, and discussing the potential for OpenActive suppliers to bid for work. The Forum is open to anyone to join, and provides the Steering Committee with insights into the state of this work.
