Four boards feed into the Trustee Board, each one led by an elected Vice-President.
This board seeks to promote IT professionalism and ethics across all sectors. Every business relies on a form of technology, which means our purpose to make IT good for society is relevant across disciplines.
In addition, the board helps businesses set the foundations for long-term success by seeking practical ways to support their employees in essential IT knowledge and skills development.
Focusing on the ways in which digital advances affect everyone in society, this board makes sure our policies, strategies and services impact the world around us in a good way.
It keeps the goals of our Royal Charter at the forefront and works with the media and government to help us have real influence.
Our aim is to help the public understand the digital world by advancing computing education. This board puts in the groundwork to make computing education effective for everyone, from ensuring every child learns about computer science to helping teachers engage students, and supporting scholars and researchers.
It does this with the help of the following sub committees and groups: Academic Accreditation Committee; Computing at Schools Board; Academy Quality Review Panel; Women in Research Group; Academy Awards Committee; Turing Lecture Committee; School Curriculum and Assessment Committee; Scottish Computing Education Committee.
Being a BCS member has many great benefits, not least as a marker of your professionalism, and this board is responsible for ensuring it brings value to everyone. It helps us to grow our membership and member groups, and to make sure you’re fully supported and guided as a member.
Two sub committees help the Community Board to improve all aspects of our membership: Finance Committee and Programme, Practice and Policy Committee.
There are also four committees that report directly into our Trustee Board.
