July 15, 2011: We All Know That Membership Has Its Rewards

DRJ's Informational Update For Thursday, July 14, 2011

Business Continuity Institute Alternative Route to Membership

We All Know That Membership Has Its Rewards

So, the question is "What has your MBCP, CBCP or ABCP done for you lately?"

Use your validated knowledge to gain membership into the BCI - the most respected BCM institute the world over.

Business Continuity Institute Alternative Route to Membership

MBCP, CBCP or ABCP will be considered for membership in the BCI

The Membership Council of the Institute has carefully examined other BCM credentials, mapping them against BCI certification, and felt it was appropriate to extend an invitation to join the BCI to those who hold respected credentials. To date, the Council has identified the MBCP, CBCP and ABCP as credentials whose foundations are broadly in line with the requirements for our gold standard AMBCI and/or MBCI certifications. Recognized as a validation of experience and knowledge, professionals that hold MBCP, CBCP or ABCP certifications and are in good standing are invited to apply for membership in the BCI without having to pass the official exam*.

Three easy ways to apply for individual membership in the BCI:

Monthly Webinar

Preparing For the Unexpected: The Trigger Events for Systemic Failure

The hypothesis is that a convergence of many long wave cycles is increasing the probability and impact of large scale disasters such as the incident in Japan. Surviving and thriving amidst these threats requires an enterprise resiliency plan that encompasses all internal functions, suppliers, and enterprise eco-system touch points. Are you prepared?
