This event is intended to be for everyone, whether you are considering joining BCS, or whether you are a new member, a seasoned member at the top of your game, or retired and now ‘giving back’ to the IT sector.

BCS is a registered charity, and the only charity/professional body to hold the Royal Charter “to promote the study and practice of Computing and to advance knowledge and education therein for the benefit of the public”.

We plan to discuss BCS in its current form, and how you think BCS should develop in the future.
