Naace, BCS, and other bodies
I suppose I could call my time at university a career break - seeing as I have decided that ICT in education is an area I think I will probably return to once I graduate...
While I'm at Uni do you guys think there is any benefit in joining the BCS, or Naace as a student member? Does being a member of these bodies have a positive effect or are there other/better alternatives?
Some people I speak to highly recommend becoming a member of these societies etc. but I'm not so sure...

I was in the BCS as a student member during University. It was fairly useful as they send you articles etc.. A few of us also got to go to a security conference for free which was very helpful and allowed us to meet a lot of people in the industry which can be useful if you're looking for work after you graduate.
That said, if you pay your £25 for the year and don't take advantage of any of the conferences talks etc.. There isn't much point.
During my time at Uni in Cardiff they had a lot of conferences in and around the campus as well as easy travelling distance away.
I hope that helps.
