Speaker: David Evans – Directof of Community and Policy, BCS
Location: EC Building – Coventry University
David Evans, Director of Community and Policy for BCS presents the new BCS Strategy and explaining the value and benefits of being a BCS member.
People are concerned about IT because it’s so prevalent in society – they want to keep their children safe; they are concerned about privacy; the legal and regulatory areas have a lot of challenges ahead; some are worried about unchecked AI research. This all goes beyond technology to societal impact, ethics and our way of life in general. That’s why The BCS feel it’s important to position ourselves as a powerful force for good, and to keep this in mind with everything we do.
If you have any questions about what BCS represents, how BCS works or why it is good to be a member then please join us for our meeting on 20th January 2016, when will welcome Mr David Evans, BCS Director of Community and Policy. Part of David’s reason for visiting Coventry is to listen to the needs of local BCS members and present the new BCS Strategy. However what he has to say should also be of interest to students and other people thinking of joining BCS.
As David will explain, the new strategy consists of Three Strategic Pillars: Community, Education and Leadership, please read more about these on the BCS web site at:http://www.bcs.org/category/11281.
Aligned with the three pillars is a series of Campaigns, details to be elaborated in David’s presentation, that are designed to help to deliver the objectives and encourage participation from BCS members and the wider community.
