Elizabeth Sparrow has become the next president for BCS The Chartered Institute for IT, the leading professional body for IT practitioners. The formal announcement was made at the Institute's Annual General Meeting in London on Wednesday, 4th November 2009. She will hold the office for one year.
According to the Institute's web site, the new president has set her sights on leading the transformation agenda that the professional body is currently engaged in. The body, which was formerly known as The British Computer Society, has recently rebranded itself and started an ambitious programme of change. It aims to become considerably more relevant to people working in the IT profession and is promoting its Chartered IT Professional (CITP) qualification. It is the only body in the United Kingdom that can confer chartered status on IT professionals by virtue of its Royal Charter granted in 1984.
As part of its transformation, BCS The Chartered Institute for IT is aiming to appeal to IT professionals world-wide.
It was also announced that Bob Assirati has become the Institute's new vice-president. A number of other leading professionals have been elected to the Institute's Council, including Chartered IT Professional and Fellow Kevin Chamberlain, who currently serves as the Secretary of the Institute's South West Branch.
