BCS Jersey holds committee meetings at intervals throughout the year. If you have an issue that you feel that the BCS Jersey committee should consider at one of the committee meetings, please contact the chairman using this email address –

Annual General Meetings (AGM)

BCS Jersey will organise an Annual General Meeting (AGM) once a year, where the committee reports to the membership on the previous year’s activities and committee members are elected. The AGM will normally be called as soon as practicable after the close of the Institute’s financial year (31 August).

BCS Jersey will give at least fourteen days written notice (it may be via email) to BCS Jersey members of the date, time and place of the AGM. The calling notice will normally include an agenda, a call for nominations to committee and where the minutes to be discussed can be found.

The agenda will normally include:

  • Welcome and Introductions
  • Apologies for absence
  • Minutes of the previous AGM (and if appropriate EGM)
  • Matters arising from the minutes
  • A report from the Chair on the years activities
  • A report from the Treasurer, including a review of income and expenditure against the budget agreed with BCS HQ for the past year and an explanation of next years budget request
  • Election of Chair, Treasurer and committee members
  • Any other business

Election of Members of Committee

A majority of the committee (including co-opted members, if any) must be BCS members.

At least three of the committee must be professional members (MBCS or FBCS), with two of them filling the roles of Chair and Treasurer.

The number of co-opted members must not exceed the number of elected members.

For more details about the roles for committee members see Roles for Committee Members (BCS UK website).
