The notice of the BAA leaving the BSC

After an Extraordinary General Meeting on 19th June, which reported the results of a vote of its members, the British APL Association formally ended its links with the British Computer Society.

For a number of years BAPLA had been a Specialst Group of the BCS, but derived little benefit from this association. Recent changes to the structure of the BCS would have meant that all BAPLA members would have been forced to become BCS members as well - a considerable increase in annual subscriptions. It was therefore felt that in order to maintain the activities of BPLA at a reasonable cost to its members it was best for the association between BAPLA and the BCS to come to an end.

This will not affect the publication of Vector BAPLA's quarterly journal on APL and other array languages
