The BCS Edinburgh Branch provides a forum for BCS members located in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Over 1,400 of the 60,000 BCS members are affiliated to the Edinburgh Branch.

The main responsibilities of the Branch are to provide services for local members and to promote the mission and objectives of the society to the IT profession and the public at large.

The main activities of the branch are the hosting of a programme of talks and social events, the arrangement of short professional development courses and the provision of support for the continuing professional development of members.

Both members and non-members are welcome to all meetings which are normally free of charge. The branch makes a charge for courses but offers a discount to BCS members.

The branch is run by a committee of volunteers who organise the branch's various events. The branch's activities are funded by an allocation from BCS headquarters.
