BCS Young Professionals Group AGM 2013

YPG logo

The BCS Young Professionals Group (YPG) is the largest membership group within BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, with over 20,000 members across the UK and internationally. Is it dedicated to representing, supporting and developing those in the foundation years of their technology and computing career, with the aim of developing the future leaders of the IT profession. It is a passionate and motivated group of volunteers who work collectively on a variety of initiatives across the UK, such as talks, workshops, education and networking events — all of which aim to develop and connect the wider IT community. I have been Chair of YPG since November 2011 and have represented the YPG constituency across a number of boards and committees, as well as more recently as a Council-elected Trustee of the BCS.

The 2013 BCS Young Professionals Group Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 9th October 2013 at BCS London. To continue the success of the past couple of years, BCS YPG is looking for nominations from highly motivated individuals to join its Executive Committee to help the BCS best represent and engage with the student and young professional community in the UK and internationally. Further information on available positions and how to stand can be found on the AGM announcement, or on the BCS Volunteer Portal. I would urge you to stand (or to get involved with YPG activities in your region through your local BCS branch) — it is a fantastic opportunity to shape the wider student and young professional agenda within the BCS, as well as engaging with your peers from across the IT profession.

I am standing for a full three-year term as Chair of YPG: please see my nomination statement. As your Chair I would like to drive forward the student and young professional agenda within the BCS, as well as ensuring that the BCS are representative as a leading modern chartered society for IT and computing professionals, both in the UK and internationally. Please feel free to contact me!
