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.

BCI Australasian Chapter

The BCI Australasian Chapter is a registered not for profit organisation run on a predominantly voluntary basis by BCI members across Australia and New Zealand. We currently have active Forums in eight locations.

Our primary goals are to represent the local interests of BCI members, and to raise business continuity awareness and understanding in Australia and New Zealand.

What does the BCI Australasian Chapter do?

We run networking forums in regions in Australia and New Zealand which can be attended by members and non-members of the BCI. The Chapter manages and hosts the annual BCI Summit Australasia Continuity & Resilience Conference and Exhibition, and also the annual BCI Australasian Awards Gala Dinner. We work with other organisations to promote Business Continuity. We act as advocates for Business Continuity in regions, states, federally and internationally, such as our participation via Standards Australia in the development of the business continuity ISO standards. We take part in working groups relating to the promotion of best-practice in business continuity, resilience and related disciplines.

How is the BCI Australasian Chapter funded?

The BCI Australasian Chapter is a registered non-profit organisation. The Chapter raises funds from local events, such as the annual BCI Summit Australasia and through Corporate sponsorships. Our sponsors are vital in ensuring Forums and major events are open to members either free of charge or at very heavily reduced and subsidised cost. All proceeds of the events we organise go towards funding activities for BCI members in the Australasian region.
