Community Board

Chair: Eur Ing Alastair Revell CEng MBCS CITP, Vice President, Community

The Community Board has strategic oversight of all aspects of BCS membership, including application, recruitment, retention, member benefits and communications.

Its aims are

  • to develop new polices, procedures, and services to grow the BCS membership, and the active member community, within the UK and internationally in line with BCS strategic objectives
  • to act as a champion for BCS membership and member groups (including geographic branches and international sections), and
  • to provide effective, responsive and focused support, encouragement and guidance for all the BCS member groups

Support for the member groups is delivered with the assistance of three committees which report to the Community Board:

The Community Board, which was formed during 2010, has a wider remit than its predecessor, the Member Services Board. Its composition, responsibilities and priorities reflect input received during an extended consultation period.
