The organisation is steered by the ITSPA council which comprises 11 individuals who have been nominated by ITSPA members and voted in by the whole membership.
The key areas of work of ITSPA are then undertaken by three standing working groups and other ad-hoc working groups for specific projects.
The three standing working groups are:
- The Industry Developments Working Group (focussed on regulatory and political challenges)
- The Operations Group - focussed on standards, technical issues and best practice initiatives
- The Promotions Group - focussed on ITSPA PR and events
More information about these groups can be found here.
The ad hoc working groups are set up to focus on specific issues (such as net neutrality, porting or mobile number ranges) that need prioritising for a certain period of time. These groups work into one of the standing working groups.
Council and the working groups are supported by a Secretariat which is responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation.
