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.

2017 event hosted by Novartis

Before thanking all of those who participated in our first 2017 event I would like to take the opportunity to thank not only the Novartis BCM team composed of Yasmin Gamal, Susi Ansary-Smith and Guy Stone, for having organized the event in such a professional way, but I would also like to express my gratitude to the senior management of Novartis who actively participated in the event and helped to make it a success .
