The Member Group Working Group (MGWG) was formed by the Programme, Practice and Policy Committee (PPP) in late 2020 and applications for interested volunteers were then requested.
The MGWG officially launched at the convention in January 2021 (https://volunteer.bcs.org/Convention_2020-21) and has met monthly (except August) throughout this year.
I am pleased to report that the MGWG has achieved its original timing plan and has concluded the analysis phase of reviewing the many issues discussed at earlier conventions as well as undertaking a wider review of what Member Groups consider as necessary to make a better BCS.
The MGWG is making thirty-six change suggestions. To understand which area these suggestions have been made about, then please take a few minutes to review the 'Overview Diagram' mind map which can be found here:

Over the next four weeks (consultation closes on Friday 29th October 2021) , you now have the chance to review and comment, agree or disagree. The hope is that these suggestions will create debate, which can lead to a consensus for real improvement to how BCS Member Groups can operate, removing impediments and supporting transparent collaboration across the BCS.
Please note: The Community Board has to give final approval for any of these suggestions.
Chair, Member Group Working Group (MGWG)
