Membership Options and Benefits


Company Membership: 

Covers your ENTIRE Company so you can send one or more employees to any BRPA function. This includes meetings and training sessions. Membership does not entitle members to free entry to events that require additional payment (e.g. Golf Outing or Holiday Luncheon) and does not allow the member to utilize the vendor table.  Each member also gets one vote related to all major organization decisions (e.g. Officers, Changes in bylaws, etc.). Memberships are geared towards organizations that have many employees who are interested in attending BRPA meetings and functions. BRPA is mostly composed of members who are Business Continuity Professionals but the association is open to anyone who has an interest in learning more about business continuity and how it can impact their work site, community or personal lives. The people that attend BRPA events do not need to be the same at each event.
