We were established in March 2010, and we seek to deliver events and services that are relevant to those working in IT and Computing in the Mid-Wales area. We originally started as a sub-branch of BCS South Wales and in 2011 we became a full branch.
BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is the leading professional body for those working in Information Technology and Computing. The Institute has over 70,000 members in more than 100 countries.
BCS, was established by Royal Charter, and seeks to champion the global IT profession and the interests of individuals engaged in that profession for the benefit of all. Further information about BCS’s mission and the Royal Charter are available. The Branch is an important way to help members engage with BCS and other professionals in and around Mid-Wales.
The Branch covers an area including South Gwynedd, Ceredigion, North Powys and West Pembrokeshire, as shown in the following map.
This is a large geographic area and we are keen to use technology where possible to either stream events as a webcast or to record for future playback.
The Mid-Wales Branch is a Member Group of BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT. The Branch is managed by a volunteer committee, which must adhere to the Rules and Processes for Member Groups. The Branch elects a committee at its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and it reports directly to the BCS Membership Board.
