    BCS for me too... last night I ritually beat to death a friend who said "what's the name of that computer club you're in?"

    "how many times do I have to tell you...it's not a club...!" *EPICBASEBALLBATTOTHEHEADACTION*

    That's probably a breach of the BCS Code of Conduct you know... ;-D

    I'm an IET member...but that's got more to do with the fact that my background is in engineering really.

    No but I really like the name - Worshipful Company of Information Technologists.
    Their 'Journeyman' Scheme looks really good too.

    Who is the scheme for?
    The Journeyman Scheme is designed for young, qualified IT professionals with the potential to become leading practitioners. Typically, journeymen will be aged between 25 and 35.

    How does the scheme work?
    The scheme lasts for three years. Journeymen work with an ITC mentor to plan, review and record their training and development. At the end of the three years, the mentor will recommend whether the journeyman should be admitted to the Company.

    What are the benefits?
    For young IT professionals, the scheme provides an opportunity to network with other journeymen and Company members, and to work with a highly experienced mentor. There are regular events, often featuring eminent guest speakers, and opportunities to develop planning, team-working and presentation skills by working with one of ITC’s panels.

    There are also a number of benefits for employers. Employees who join the Journeyman Scheme will be bringing new skills and expertise into the workplace, expanding the knowledge base and providing valuable networking opportunities. The scheme is cost-effective, and will cause minimal disruption - mentors give their time pro bono, and mentoring sessions take place outside working hours. Employers can also take the opportunity to attend Company events.

    It's ok, he's not a member - if you're not a member I think it's fair game
