FAQs

What happens if I do not renew my membership?

If a membership is not renewed after receiving renewal reminders, it will automatically be lapsed. If
you were a certified member (CBCI, AMBCI, MBCI, AFBCI or FBCI) and your membership has been
lapsed, you can rejoin using one of the following options:

a) Pay all subscription fees from the date that your membership expired to present, thus bringing
membership up to date. This option is open for a maximum of 3 years, after that, option b) is
the only option.
b) Take and pass the CBCI examination and come through the assessment process.
c) If you were a non-certified member and you wish to rejoin, you may renew as an Affiliate
without paying back fees.

When are my subscriptions due for renewal?

Membership fees are due for renewal a year following the anniversary of membership being awarded.
For example, if membership is awarded on the 15 June 2017 then the renewal fee would be payable
on 15 June 2018. An invitation and invoice to renew is automatically sent via email to each member

I am now retired; can I claim a reduction in fees?

At the Board’s discretion, members of the BCI who have permanently retired and are no longer in paid
employment as a business continuity practitioner or consultant may receive a 50% discount on their
membership fees.

Members wishing to claim this discretionary reduction in fees should sign and return the retired
declaration form. Please email membership@thebci.org to ask for this form.
