About us

Our forum (formerly ELITE) facilitate the exchange of experiences and views amongst IT leaders and provide the opportunity to be informed by leading speakers and contributors in their field. We provide members with an impartial setting for pressure-free, non-commercial networking, problem solving and discussion amongst peers.

Our forum also acts as a focal point for BCS to address computing leadership issues across business, the computing supply industry, academia, and government.

Membership of our forum is a recognition of your achievement as an IT leader and not of job title or size of budget. Once granted, your membership continues through career changes or breaks, and into your retirement.

There’s no joining fee or any regular subscription, and you can attend as many (or as few) meetings a year as you wish.
