New Arrangements for Distribution of Resurrection
For the last 25 years Resurrection has been distributed free of charge
to all CCS members and generously paid for by
BCS The Chartered Institute for IT.
Over time, the membership of the CCS has increased from a few dozen
to well over a thousand, around half of whom are not BCS members.
Understandably it has been decided that this arrangement is no longer
sustainable and starting with edition number 71 we will be asking
most non-members of BCS who wish to continue to receive paper copies
of Resurrection to pay a small annual subscription of £10
for four issues of Resurrection
Current BCS members will continue to receive paper copies of
Resurrection as will former BCS members aged 60 and over who had at
least five years continuous membership of the BCS.
Of course Resurrection will continue to be freely available on the web at
If we have your email address you will be notified each time a new edition
If you received an explanitory note with Resurrection 69 recently
then this means that we had NOT identified you as a qualififing recipient for
free copies Resurrection in the future.
If no such enclosure was foun, then you will continue to recieve Resurrection
The next edition of Resurrection (Resurrection 70) will be the
last one which will go to everybody.
Non-qualifying members who want to continue to receive paper copies of
Resurrection can subscribe using the BCS online booking system at
CCS Member’s Email Addresses
We have recently discovered that the BCS, who maintain the CCS membership list
on our behalf, does not have email addresses for around 300 CCS members.
Until now this has been of little account, but we would like to be able
to email as many CCS members as possible,
not least to inform members each time a new edition of Resurrection
If you do not receive occasional email from us telling you about forthcoming
lectures then we don’t have your email address.
We would be grateful if you would email our esteemed membership secretary at
enclosing your name and address (so that he can accurately identify you).
