The BCI operates a 'Fair Fee Policy' for its members. The annual membership subscription fees are determined based on the member's place of residence and work. The income values used for this purpose are taken from the World Bank Income Group Definitions, which may be updated periodically. This ensures that our membership fees are adjusted in proportion to the income value of the member's country, making BCI Membership equitable for all.
The Code of Professional Conduct sets out the standards of professional and ethical behaviour that the BCI expects of all its members. All members commit to meeting the obligations of the code when they join the BCI, regardless of membership grade, career stage or the countries in which they work.
With over 9,000 members in more than 120 countries, our network of business continuity and resilience professionals help to keep the world's organizations on track, no matter what happens.
We set the guidelines. We train professionals. We gather the research, and we spread the knowledge. Together, we work to create a more resilient future.
I really appreciated the time taken to provide feedback, and it was really valuable. There was some very kind words and growth opportunities identified, which made me feel as though the assessors really had my progression in mind.
The support and guidance received was fantastic. There was a lot to read through, but the team were on hand to answer my questions. Kirsty Morrison in particular was a great help and a credit to the organisation.
The membership application process itself is a valuable point of reflection of how far we’ve come as individuals and as a speciality.
After becoming a member of the BCI, I was able to access thought leadership on topics that were new to me.
