The British Computer Society USA Section, held its first regional meeting for the State of Texas on Tuesday, November 13th 2007. The meeting was sponsored by SOURCECORP and was held at their head office location in Dallas.

 Attendees included Gavin Grounds (Chair, BCS USA Section and CIO, SOURCECORP Business Process Solutions); Dr. Peter Ingerman (Treasurer, BCS USA Section); Suresh Nair (Secretary, BCS USA Section and CEO, SEEDAC); Dr. Bhavani Thuraisingham (Professor, UT Dallas); Nick Oldfield (Principal, Old York Consulting); and John Bridle (CEO, Bricon).

 The objective of the meeting was to draw up plans for increased activity of the BCS USA Section, in harmony with other US societies, the business community, and government. Attention was given to providing further value to the BCS's 480+ members in the United States.

 "This was an excellent meeting," commented Peter Ingerman, "and was probably the most successful session since founding the USA Section."

 Gavin Grounds was equally pleased with the results. "Given the sheer geography and demographics involved, establishing the British Computer Society USA section and subsequently making it effective is extremely challenging," he said. "We made great strides today and are particularly appreciative of the support given to us by SOURCECORP in making this event possible."

The BCS USA Section's Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 3, 1300CST.
