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

With over 900 active members from across the USA, the BCI USA Chapter is your regional voice for all things related to the business continuity (BC) profession and discipline.
