What are BCI Chapters?

BCI Chapters have been established in countries or regions where there is a large community of BCI members. The Chapters have locally elected officers who represent the BCI in their region. 

Would you like to become a member of the BCI?

Just launched – an international jobs board which will pull in continuity and resilience vacancies from around the world. Certified BCI members seeking a new role will have the opportunity to post their CVs/résumés with unique identifying logos so that recruiters can identify them easily as professional practitioners. BCI members seeking to recruit new member of staff will save substantially on the cost of posting advertisements as well as accessing other recruitment tools. >> Go there

New BCI Speakers Bureau Launched

The BCI now operates a speakers bureau, listing members who have offered to present based on a wide range of topics.

The bureau is intended to serve the membership, the business continuity profession and the wider business community by connecting those willing to speak with those who need speakers. Speakers are business continuity professionals who have identified a willingness to present at organizational meetings, conferences, or special events.

The nomination form for prospective speakers is available here: /index.php/join-our-speakers-bureau
