BCS rules (draft rewrite)
Relationship of these rules to tohers
Process for maintaining these rules
Members Groups exist to pursue agreed aims and objectives,
usually via presentations, conferences, seminars, workshops,
social gatherings and networking.
Each Member Group will typically hold four or more events a
year, open to all members of the group.
Member Groups may also establish partnerships with other
bodies in order to pursue joint initiatives.
Any person can participate in a Member Group, but only
Institute members have voting rights. A Group can apply
conditions of entry.
Any person can attend Member Group events unless the Group
chooses to restrict attendance. Where a meeting fee is
charged, this should normally be lower for Institute members.
The same applies, where practicable, to conferences and
International Sections: Each year the Section Committee
shall appoint one of its members to serve as Liaison officer
who shall have responsibility for liaison with the appropriate
national computer society (or societies) of the country (or
countries) in which the Section is located.
An International Section should be established as a separate
legal entity, be covered by combined liability insurance or as
required locally, and should comply with local requirements in
relation to any registration requirements. At no time will the
Institute accept financial responsibility for the Section's
activities other than by resolution of Trustee Board. The
registered address of the Section (where needed under local
Law) will be decided by the Section committee.
