BCS ELITE, the Computing Leadership Forum


ELITE, the Computing Leadership Forum, is for those who make distinguished and influential contributions to computing leadership in and across communities. ELITE, a member group within the BCS, is a foremost forum for computing leaders regardless of their branch of computing, e.g. enterprise IT, digital, the IoT, robotics, etc.., and is now also the National Body for representing the views of CIOs, CTOs, IT Directors and other IT leaders at EuroCIO, the European CIO Association. ELITE is open to BCS members and non-members alike; any computing leader who meets the ELITE membership criteria is welcome to apply to join.

ELITE is impartial and so the regular ELITE events provide a pressure-free, non-commercial setting for networking, problem solving and discussion amongst peers. ELITE is unique in many ways including representing its members' interests and concerns at the highest levels within the BCS and beyond.

A volunteer committee and regional organisers oversee ELITE business, including its events programme. 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.
