We Want You . . .

By Robbie Atabaigi and Martin Myers

The Rules and Regulations (“R&R”) committee of the DRJ has been providing one of the best resources for professionals within our industry.  Our volunteers have worked to create and maintain a free resource including as broad a base of information as possible.

Our committee efforts thus far have been mostly U.S. based with occasional influx of international contributions.  To be truly globally diverse and have a more complete listing of Rules and Regs, we need to expand our efforts with experienced Business Continuity Management team members who can share the rules and regulations that are happening within their respective continents.    Whether you are based outside of the U.S. or based within and have insight into other Rules and Regs, we would appreciate your support and contributions.

We see this opportunity as a win-win for us and for you.  You would serve as a committee member, network with a team of dedicated folks, and walk away with a new experience.  We would gain from your knowledge and in the end, have a comprehensive listing of global Rules and Regulations that are shared with our peers worldwide.

We look forward to your participation in this effort.  Please reach out to Martin Myers (This email address is being protected from spambots.
