Welcome to the Business Continuity Planners Association

The Business Continuity Planners Association (BCPA), based in Minneapolis-St. Paul, has supported business professionals with a non-profit, mutual benefit association for those participating in Business Continuity, Emergency Management, Crisis Management,  Disaster Recovery, Vendor Resiliency planning or a related professional vocation since 1994.

The mission of BCPA is to provide a professional and educational environment for the exchange of experience, dissemination of information, professional growth, and for added value of mutual interest to the membership.

BCPA membership is open to any and all professionals interested in the vocations identified above, or related vocations.

Members will be assessed annual dues, payable upon receipt of invoice from BCPA, and will be informed of the uses of these dues at least annually. Dues may be pro-rated on a semi-annual basis to bring a new member into the annual billing cycle.
