A web site is the primary means for BCS members and non-members to learn more about the role of the group, its committee members, constitution (if the group has one), minutes of meetings held by the committee and events planned and delivered by the group.
The web site should contain:
- The group’s aims and objectives
- The group's name, scope, geographic boundaries (where applicable), aims and objectives
- Instructions on how to join the group
- A reference to these rules, and any variations the Member Group is using (or a copy of the group’s constitution)
- A full list of office-bearers and committee members and methods for contacting them
- Details of future events with agenda, abstracts, location and joining instructions etc. A template for a suitable event flyer is available at (link to be added).
- Reports of past events with event flyer, minutes, slides, summaries or full texts of presentations etc.
- A link to any relevant BCS Member Network or Social Networking site
- Links to other BCS groups associated by geographical or technical proximity
- A link to the main BCS site
Support to create and maintain a Member Group web site is available at (link to be added).
A Member Group website that contains all the above will avoid the need to maintain a paper constitution.
The web site should conform to the BCS Brand Guidelines. Where a Member Group has been established as a joint venture with another body branding implications, including the website, need to be agreed. The group may include url links to the websites of those third party bodies on their group’s web site.
