Sponsorship is useful for funding Member Group expenses and for strengthening relations between other organisations and the BCS. In general obtaining sponsorship is encouraged, subject to:
- It being consistent with the aims of the BCS
- It does not conflict with or damage the BCS brand
Support from any organisation, whether financial or ‘in kind’ (such as free meeting venues) should not be allowed to create an impression of undue influence on the conduct of the Member Group. Care should also be taken to avoid appearing to be promoting the interests of individual sponsors.
Sponsors who are exhibiting at BCS London must provide, in advance, a copy of their Public Liability Insurance. This can either be emailed direct to BCS London - firstname.lastname@example.org - or to the relevant Member Groups co-ordinator.
For further information: The Sponsorship and Advertising Policy
Any commitments beyond publicising the sponsoring organisation must be agreed with the Member Groups Team (email@example.com) on behalf of the Policy Committee.
