Membership, Online Community
BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT has 60,000 members in 150 countries, and a wider community of business leaders, educators, practitioners and policy-makers all committed to our mission.
As a charity with a royal charter, the BCS agenda is to lead the IT industry through its ethical challenges, to support the people who work in the industry, and to make IT good for society.
Soon after being appointed in 2019, Holly Porter, Membership Director, recognised that to remain relevant as a professional body in a fast changing profession BCS needed to better understand its audiences and how they are served. “I recognised our brand presence and voice would benefit from further coordination. At the same time, I wanted us to better serve individual members based on their unique needs – to understand who our members are and where they come from and what they do.”
