At the National Conference notice that the Branch Welfare Project has been renamed Branch Community Support was given. All Branches are encouraged to register to partake in this project, please see the new leaflet explaining the project and how to get involved and also a list of frequently asked questions. Please note to register your Branch must have already registered for O365, if you would like to take part but have yet to register for O365 please contact the County Office as soon as possible to get that access set up.
Those Branches on O365 will need to follow this link, log in to Office 365 (utilising their current log in details) and fill out the BCS registration form. At this stage, it should be noted that the only method of registration for BCS is via the above link, and Branches should not access Office 365 via any alternative route. Upon clicking the link you will be asked for your Office 365 log in username/password. Once completed, the page featuring the BCS registration form should feature. Complete the form as required and hit the ‘submit’ button.
The period following Conference through to end of July is the registration period for Branches wishing to partake in BCS, and that the system (to be incorporated in Office 365) does not go LIVE until September 2016. During this period however, the project team will continue to communicate with you all with a view to providing clear and consistent key messages.
