Welcome to the ELITE Group website

BCS ELITE (Effective Leadership in IT) Group is for those who have made distinguished, influential contributions to IT leadership. ELITE is a membership group within the BCS and represents its members' interests and concerns at the highest levels within the BCS and beyond. ELITE is open to BCS members and non-members alike; any IT leader who meets the ELITE membership criteria is welcome to apply to join.

The regular ELITE events provide a pressure-free, non-commercial setting for networking, problem solving and discussion. By joining, you're contributing to keeping BCS ELITE as the foremost forum for IT leaders.

A volunteer committee and regional organisers oversee ELITE business, including its events programme. If you would like to hold an event with ELITE, visit our Organising events with ELITE page. ELITE Committee members are elected by the wider ELITE membership so all members have a say in the direction of ELITE.
